My son is always covering his ears because of sounds. I got him some head phones and the seem to help a lot. His behavior has improved. I'm interested in knowing other signs of sensory problems and any ideas you have that might help these problems. thanks

Oh my goodness there is sooooo much information out there. I recommend getting a book the first one I read was
http://www.amazon.com/Sensory-Sensitive-Child-Practical-Out---Bounds/dp/0060527188/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1350141601&sr=1-1&keywords=out+of+bounds+behavior
And this one next for ideas to help
http://www.amazon.com/Out---Sync-Child-Has-Revised/dp/0399532714/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1350141662&sr=1-1&keywords=out+of+sync+child+has+fun

You can also google Sensory Processing Disorder and get lots of information. An OT (occupational therapist) can really help with sensory problems.

Hi, I have a ? About sensory. I'm not sure what to look up. Or may be someone has an idea. Our 4year old was always laying on top of his favorite tigger. I know he has autism and I'm waiting to find out how his ot going to help. So I had to throw his tigger away cause with him always on it. He went potty and soo I could not get off the poop. Now he won't really lay on the other toys maybe cause they are very soft I guess . So now he keeps trying to lay on top of his little brother. We keep telling him no he going to hurt his brother and he don't like it. I did not know throwing that toy away would cause him a problem. And he does this a lot. I need to call his ot Monday. I'm sorry I still just feel so new to dealing with it.

We love our headphones....he uses them in school and anywhere he might need to concentrate.  We also use gum/chewy necklaces for his oral sensory seeking/self regulation.
