When we are little, everyone goes through the stage of touching, feeling, mouthing and smelling everything. When we sit for food it invariably ends up everywhere! Some children however with a delayed development, learning need, sensory or behavioural need may take this ‘curiosity of feeling, mouthing and smearing a bit further. To prevent smearing, we offer various helpful products, including clothing with hard-to-reach openings and textured putty that can alleviate the need to reach into one's underwear or nappies. They are not guranteed to work as every child is different, but worth looking into further.
Please take a look at our smearing advice page for more information on how you can help.
