Hi,my son is 5 years old.He is a very happy child and absolutely loves music and has an amazing sense of rhythm and music.He also loves letting street dogs etc. I see a few odd things in his behaviour
1. Off late he has started licking the floor ,put sand in his mouth,lick his hand ,lick.my cheek (says he is doggy),licks dirt ,licks bath foam _ they all seem to me sensory issues.
2. He has also started throwing things..like say he is watching TV or listening to music or running around or perhaps doesn't know how to release his energy and all of a sudden picks up the salt container opens it and pours the salt on the ground ,opens his bottle and pours water on the floor and then laughs at the reaction of the people around.When I tell him.its a wrong thing to do he says "ok mumma sorry I wont do it again " and then it repeats again on another day.
3. He has still.not started writing or rather even doing pattern lines ..just scribbles.
4. ,offlate I see him putting his hand in the loo and splashing the water there .
5.doesnt sit to finish an activity. No concept of start -finish of an activity.
6.sometimes he gets obsessed with one specific song and wants to hear it on a loop.. which later on I feel is to get the lyrics and tune right so that he can sing.And then he takes his Mike stands in front of the mirror and sings. But I see him throwing a fit sometimes on this..
Good things : loves story books being read to him .
Loves music and sings really well.
Loves children and animals.
Extremely affectionate and soft.
Please help .
