Sensory Processing Disorder Bathtime Problems

Diet, Health and Hygiene

Diet, Health and Hygiene are possibly the areas that give me the greatest concern when it comes to Sensory Processing Disorder. Not getting your child to eat, sleep, and keep clean (encompassing brushing their teeth, washing their hair, getting their hair and nails cut) is quite a worry.

I do not have the answers but have started to compiled posts on what helps us help The Sensory Seeker in these areas. Listed below are some of the key topics, plus there’s a link to the posts in this category below the title.

  1. Hi
    I have found that my child who used to be a poo smearer, now puts his finger in his bottom then puts it straight in his mouth! His bottom is as clean as can possibly be and he doesn’t need the toilet, but he keeps doing it. as soon as I catch him I explain it is dirty and can give him a bad belly, and I get him to wash his hands, but he still does it. he is a sensory seeker and is 5. Have you come across this?

    1. Hi no sorry it isn’t anything I have come across but I am sure it isn’t anything to do with whether he feels his bottom is dirty or not but some other seeker/exploration behaviour.

      Have you spoke to a health visitor about it?
