He screams the entire time he takes a bath. showers are out of the question as he screams worse. He says things like "I am wet". He even shakes. He has some developmental delays, and may be "high functioning autism" so far the peds have not felt that his delays are in the autisic range, however his speech and occupational therapist thinks he may be.
Regardless, he has a huge issue with water. Its very frustrating, saddening, and overwhelming to have your child scream, shake and fight you when he needs a bath. After a while, he usually calms down and enjoys the bath... never the shower. But it can take a while, and sometimes like tonight, he just screams. I will wash him as quickly as possible so he can get out.. but its not like baths are an option... he has to get clean.
Anyone deal with this and have some advice?
