My son did bang his head on walls and many children with SPD do. It is something with the repetivness and the sound KWIM? I hope the OT has some good suggetsions for this as it is hard I know ((HUGS))

I wish I had some advice for you, but unfortunately, I don't.

my daughter started doing this at about 18 months old. She would hit her head against the wall, floor, anything. She actually ended up breaking her nose (which is VERY hard to do as a young child). We were assured that this was a normal thing. And once her brushing therapy was really agressively started, she quit hitting her head as much. She is now 2 1/2 and rarely does it.
