For the past several months my 8 yr old son has started this pretty hazardous obsession, where he closes his eyes all the time, and puts a blanket over his head. I am constantly behind him trying to remove the blanket from his face, and telling him to open his eyes. I gave him a baseball hat to wear instead of the blanket, but he just sneaks and finds another blanket. He's somewhat verbal, but talks in phrases mostly. When I intervene he has the BIGGEST meltdowns. Just last nite I tried to take it away while he ate. He was yanking for anything around him that looked like a blanket. He basically walks around the house like a blind child, and more often than not he's bumping into things. I know he can see just fine because I held up some pictures and letters from a distance and he sees fine. I do have him scheduled for an eye appointment end of this month with a specialist, but I really don't know what else to do. :(
