My son with #Autism will no longer wear shoes

I really worried about this upcoming school year for Emmett. He hasn’t tolerated shoes in almost 2 months. He’s been wearing flip flops, which sorta seems odd but that’s all he will wear. 

He has to wear shoes at school, flip flops won’t cut it. 

I went out and bought him water shoes yesterday which he did wear for a bit before telling me they feel funny. 


The sensory issues he’s been struggling with for most of his life have kicked into overdrive. At least that’s how it seems. I don’t know what I’m doing to do for school. 

Brushing doesn’t help either because I’ve already been trying that. 

Between the bathroom and the sensory related clothing issues, I’m completely overwhelmed. These not only impact him but everyone else in the house as well. 

Trying to go anywhere is impossible or at the very least, met with significant delays.
