Hi, So Missy came today to work with Chase.  He had a speech delay but he past that. Today he even said 5 words together.  She has even said he is smart for his age. I work with him alot. He can say his numbers 1-12. He will copy me and say his abc all the way to z.     He knows all of his colors when you ask. And he learning shapes.         But today she bring glue to do art stuff. He help glue stuff and got some on his finger not a big deal he just try to wipe off on her hand.  She ask if he like to play in snow. No he says eww and dry his hands off on me.  She said thats not normal ! And so that is his goals.   Really that not normal ?

Missy an OT? If so they get them to touch "yucky" things.
I've never heard of any kid thinking snow was yucky.

Idk if my 5 year old would touch snow. But of course we don't get snow here. So she's never seen it.

I think she may be jumping the gun a little. It may be a small sensory thing.

It may be a sensory issue, which is probably what she was getting at. She could have been more clear about it than "that's not normal".

My son has some sensory issues, it impacts his feeding and he also doesn't like certain things on his hands (especially anything sticky or wet). He never went through the finger feeding stage partially because he wouldn't touch the food. He does, however LOVE to play in the sand at the beach (which OTs usually find strange for a kid with sensory issues) and he likes the snow (although he wears gloves, so I'm not sure that he would want touch it without gloves).I know I wouldn't, because it's too cold! LOL

Lol at 2, I think its normal. My kids didn't like snow until about 3. Before that it was too cold, wet, and funny feeling. But if course all 3 of mine have autism so what do I know about normal lol

really though, I don't think its an unusual reaction
