Does anyone have any suggestions about how to help a 6yr old boy understand the amount of pressure or force he is using? My son doesn't put his hands on his friends to hurt them but when he does come in contact it is usually with too much force. Or if he kicks a ball on the playground it soars across it and hits someone. Again, his intentions aren't to hurt someone. We only have these issues in school and after care. I think the pressure helps organize him as well as the force and energy he exerts to kick the ball harder. School is concerned it is a safety issue, which it is, but they think it is more choice than impulse. I know my kid isn't perfect but I also know he isn't mean spirited. He does attend OT and they have done a few activities but it doesn't seem to have helped much. Does anyone else deal with the "physicalness" of SI?
