“One of the most common questions that parents ask us as occupational therapists is: “why is my child sensitive to her clothing?” Or, “why won’t my daughter wear jeans?” Or, “why doesn’t my child like to wear certain shoes and socks?”
While this may seem like an odd behavior, it is not unusual in the life of a child who has Sensory Processing Disorder. More specifically, sensitivity to clothing is very common in the life of a child who has tactile defensiveness.” – North Shore Pediatric Therapy
