my son was just diagnosed with sensory issues of the nervious system. He has a real hard siting still for a long time unless it is playing video games or listening to music really loud. The major part of this is that he does not feel pain...

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I have cared for several children with varying degrees of sensory sensitivity, each one if them at some point worked with an occupational therapist which helped them all. Speak with your dr and see if he/she can recomend an occupational threapist for your son

I would get him interested in Karate or gymnastics...something that will help him utilize his energy and lack of pain. I have experience with children with sensory disorders....they never realize how strong they are or understand spatial perception (ie they just plow right through to where they want to go). Give him lots of sensory related activities, such as making goop, stomping in rain puddles, etc. If he likes loud music with a lot of excitment, put a radio outdoors and let him hunt for bugs...Find things that will allow an excess of sensory input and output but also gives him the opportunity to work on focus. Hope this helps
