K's Ot wants her to do more messy play. We did shaving cream with her. It is interesting to watch her. You can see when she gets overwhelmed, cause the drool starts up. But we do it at her pace. And she can work though it.
It was similar over the weekend with dogs. She likes them, but also takes awhile to pet them. We went camping and at one point she is walking away from me following after a dog. They stop and let her smile at the dog. She wants to pet them, just took time. She finally found a small one and was petting her. And yes, her drool was back.
Today, we did beans and rice. What else can we do? What do you do?
Oh and I was reading, it seems she has tactile defensiveness. That would be why the OT was wanting us to do this. Yes, we do the brushing and compressions before she plays. For the most part, she does not drool. I only see it now when we try to stimulate her. So, she is doing better there.
