Elijah got a time out on Friday because he touched his aides arm and they did not know what his motive or plan was. He told me he was just going to tickle her arm. Today he got another time out for trying to tickle his teacher. They are trying to get it into his brain that it is not alright to touch people without asking. He has sensory processing disorder. Since he was a baby he would like to touch, but not be touched back. He has always liked to stroke my arm, rub my back, and little things like that. He needs that sensory input. Other sensory things are backwards like he can not stand noise, crowds, lights too bright, certain lighting at all, etc. But he has always had a need to touch. I think that the school is over reacting a little bit, but wanted to know what others think. I guess it is precautionary because he was touching innapropriately and I see thier point, but to put him in time out for it seems a little bit much.
