It may be a good idea as he is 7 years old to let him dress himself allow more time so he doesnt feel so rushed I have noticed that a lot of fighting that goes on before school is the mad rush everyone has in the mornings , get up earlier it will pay dividends in the freedom from stress. It is possible that you are all giving him too much help when he is crying before bed perhaps you are feeding the frezy so to speak, let him be in control of getting dressed and ready for bed, give him vhoices instead of demands,accomodate him when you can.What does his Dad say about the issue how does he handle it?
obody knows about SID and there aren't occupational therapists.
There's an excellent book on the market (you can purchase it on-line if it is not available in your area) titled "the highly sensitive child" by Elaine N. Aron. If you google the title of this book, you should get information re purchasing it. Hope this helps ....
Well, his Dad is very good with him. He handles it distracting Dennis from his tactile problem with an interesting conversation. It doesn't always work but it helps. Often Dennis won't throw a tantrum but he will feel so uneasy about his clothing that tears will come streaming out of his eyes. Thanks for your advice.
