I know with autism that sensory is a big thing but last night my child found my blanket was so soft (and by the way it is not that soft its not fleece or anything) and so he decided to rub his cheek on it and turn in circles for over an hour. At first it was cute because he had this doofy smile from ear to ear then after ten mins I said okay, nope that did not work... So, I let it go. I attempted two more times to redirect his attention and both failed. So, I let it go I thought I am going to just pick my battles. Well, about an hour later his face has what looks like roadrash and a few bloody spots on it because he rubbed his cheek for that long and then he says oh it burns. I swiftly said so you won't be doing that again and he says "well, it felt good maybe when it stops burning because I can't help it.. I want to feel it again". Has anyone ever had this happen, their pretty much out of this world so it is not as though you can re-direct the situation but you really don't wish your kid to look like they ate pavement either. Also, anyone experience any good sensory items for children that had this same issue to supplement?
