Some days we decide we’re wearing a hockey helmet to school.
I’ve come to learn its not him being stubborn or wanting to even go skating. Sensory processing is different for everyone living on the spectrum.
This little guy loves the feeling his helmet gives him, it helps him block out other sounds and feel safe. This really confused me because I have tried tirelessly to have him wear sound cancelling headphones and he hates the feeling of them in or near his ears.
Something we are still working on, thankfully he doesn’t want the hockey helmet everyday.
