Why do I open my mouth when I apply mascara or eye makeup?
I ask because I think it's some sort of reflex. (Name of reflex? Anyone???) Brad has a similar reflex, but obviously not in a mascara context. When Brad attempts to cut paper with scissors (with his left hand), he splays the fingers of his right hand and opens his mouth. This happens every time, without fail, and he looks tense. His OT says he's overloaded or challenged or something. Maybe it has something to do with concentration?
Just wondering. Has anyone else noticed this with their child, typical or atypical?
