Please help. I am a mother to a seven year old moderately functioning autistic boy with sensory processing disorder. He has missed over 6 days of school since I can't seem to get him to wear clothes. This has gotten so much worse in the last 2 weeks. He can't wear ANY underwear (screams that it is squeezing his insides), and socks are out of the question (says they hurt his feet because they squeeze so tight). I have tried every boy underwear out there...as well as girls unders too!! I've went to seamless socks, Hanna Andersson socks (they worked for a while) and sandals (he won't wear them in the winter)...Nothin is working. He has one pair of pajama pants (Hulk) that he can wear (but in the beginning even these don't feel good). These pants have been washed so much that they are startin to fall apart! I sent him to school today with those pants on with no unders and no socks. If anyone knew, they'd think I was crazy. when he is frustrated, even those articles become unbearable and he melts down almost immediately. I don't know what else to do. I cry myself to sleep every night as my naked little boy cries himself to sleep also....Any suggestions??? I'm open to ALL ideas!! Thanks.
