Glasses (keeping on)
Do you have any tricks of the trade for keeping glasses on a tactile-defensive four-year-old?
Some kids with CdLS just will not wear glasses. About 50% have a behavior characterized by extreme aversion to facial manipulations. But here are some tips:
- Cable wrap around temples
- Band around the back of the head
- Mitts on hands
- Water wings inflated on elbows
Make sure they fit and prescriptions are correct!
