My son is 21 months old. He always has these odd little quirks because he is autistic. The newest one has really got me puzzled. I bought him a brand new pair of shoes yesterday so he could wear something other than his sandals that are not in the best shape. So I put on sock on him....then he screams like I'm hurting him. I put the other sock on him...same thing only much louder and much more flinging his arms and legs around. I left them on him for a little bit hoping he would calm down...but he only got worse and worse and worse. I even tried putting his new "big boy" shoes on with them. But, that didn't work. I guess we are stuck with his sandals. His therapist said some autistic kids at the feeling of the seam in the sock. I don't know of a seamless sock and before too long it's going to start getting cool out and he's going to have to put away his sandals. Help!Answer Question

Here is a site that sells seamless socks for kids.
I would say to that this may just be one of those battles that you may just loose. My friends son is PDD-NOS and he Would not wear socks for a long time. She got him some of the 'fur' lined crocs for the winter. Also you may be able to talk to his therapist if he has one. she may be able to integrate solving this issue into her sessions.
