Greetings all, I'm posting here in haste (forgive me, please!) as my recent attempts for outside help and guidance in the way of OT have failed and it looks like it is going to take me some time to get the ball rolling again, get thru the insurance company maze, and get someone to help.
I recently figured out that my internationally adopted 2.5YO has very clear sensory integration issues. I can explain it more if necessary, but he is clearly and intensely seeking- wears elastics up and down his arms, rubs rice/food in his hair, does everything to the extreme, gets hurt constantly, runs from me in public places, loves to carry ridiculously heavy things, etc. All of that seems oversimplified a thousand precent, but you get the picture.This is extremely new to me, and I am just beginning to learn.
In two weeks, we leave for 10 days in Disney World (me solo with kids, no dh). I am concerned about how to give him a good "diet" while in the Disney lifestyle and traveling. I know that if I have some tools and plans/materials up my sleeve, our whole vacation will be better. But honestly, I have not even figured out how to fill him up here in the house yet, so figuring out what to do while traveling and touring is a complete mystery. I'd love help in the way of a list of ideas.
In house we are pretty much doing bubble baths, playdough pushing, rolling, squeezing, heavy carrying jobs, a few obstacle courses, organized jumping, sitting/playing in beans/rice bins. Wearing tight things/wraping in blanket which he loves.
Any ideas appreciated!
