My 5.5 yr old has started doing something, I am not sure what it is. Perhaps someone here has experience with it or has advice about what to do, if anything?
He has SPD (sensory defensiveness was the diagnosis a year ago). We did OT for a couple of months and then stopped because he was doing better. I initially did a lot of regulating work at home with him (I'm SAHM) and pulled activities out of the two sensory books I have.
He is currently seeing a chiropractor regularly and just recently a craniosacral therapist (we are only going to be able to afford six sessions).
He has been walking on his toes since age one...
Anyway, DH and I have noticed that at night time, when we read bedtime stories to him and his sister, that while we're reading, he starts a hum (very brief, a couple of seconds?) and then stops, right at the beginning of every sentence. He says that he cannot help it, and that he cannot stop it. It is annoying to say the least, and I am worried.
I am homeschooling him this year but honestly, he is such a challenge that we are going to enroll him in the local public school (we are hoping to get into a magnet). I find that all my days revolve around him and his behavioral issues (melt-downs I call them), that I have little time for his little sister let alone myself.
He takes weekly swimming lessons and tai kwon do classes, and really enjoys those. He has a trampoline and crash pad but rarely uses them (mainly because he demands that his sister and I join him, and sometimes we are not in the mood to jump and crash).
Anyway, can someone tell me what that humming sound might be? I am planning to go back to OT after CST is finished but that is two months away.
