I know a lot of families of kids with SPD, ADHD or autism wait until their kids are older than normal to get braces, and only if they really have to have them. I thank my lucky stars that my son doesn’t need braces (unlike his sister, who’s teeth were a crazy mess). I don’t know that he would tolerate them, and I know he certainly would have constantly picked them apart.
