Battle of the wills....I lost!
Ok so bought little man a new coat. I thought it was a great deal. I got the coat plus the outer vest that he can wear by itself and it was waterproof too. Way to go momma right! NO! He would go into total meltdown each time this coat was brought out. He would fight wearing it. He wouldn't walk into the school building. It was as if the coat was made of lead and making him drop to the ground. He would literally scream bloody murder. His teacher would have the same battle getting him to wear it outside on the playground. He would constantly take it off. So talked to his ABA about this and her suggetion was that we could desensitize him to the coat by making him wear it a little more each time until he realized he had no choice but to wear it. Okay I can do that....right? well talk to his teacher and she suggested buying another coat that was made of a differet material. What? I just bought this coat was she crazy. I am not made of money. Well after our battle yesterday with him wearing the coat and screaming at the top of his lungs I gave in. I went straight from the school to the store and bought a new coat. So I put the new coat on him when he gets home and wouldn't you know. He pulled at it, rubbed it, and left it on. He didn't mind one bit this morning when he had to wear his new coat. So question is....has your child with ASD been like this with any clothing? What did you do?
