Well my sons pt came to the house yesterday and she put 2 peacies of tap on my sons shoulders and she said that she was hoping that it would help even him out. I am not sure yet if it is doing anything that it is suppose to be doing. But we are trying it that is for sure we have about 2 more days before we can take it off so I am trying to see how he reacts so far he seems to be over stimulated and hard to put and go to sleep that is just what I have noticed. Has anyone ever heard of this stuff or tried it

Yeah needless to say the tape thing was a very very very very bad idea seriously. I feel bad for him I am not sure if it is because my son is now sick or if he is just a different kid now but since we had the tap on he won't take baths I have to give him sponge baths and thank good ness that, that works, and he spends most of his time walking around upset we are working on changing that with his sensory diet but man o man he is just a different kid right now and we are pretty bummed about it. Even though the tape seemed to give him a rash and push him he did seem to be over all happier about things with it on. It is so hard to know what to do about things.

Hi Venna, Have never heard of the tape idea. I know with my youngest he is very sensitive to loud noises. We are in the process of desensitising him which involves slowly increasing his noise level tolerence.

Well an update on the tape it didn't work for my son, for the 2 days he had it on he didn't hardly sleep those few days and then his night time routine got all messed up and because he didn't get a lot of sleep he also got sick so 3 days was about all we could do and my husband said no more.
