4 year old sensory issues / holding random objects

My 4 year old son has some sensory issues and some different quirks that I am intrigued if anyone else has experience.

He always has to have something in his hand and gets really distressed when it its taken away from him. normally random things and his favourite is a calpol syringe, spoon, pencil, straw, piece of plastic from a toy etc.

He will often stare at the object and zone out while doing so.

It used to be one object and now he can be holding up to 10 things at a time which can restrict what he is able to do with his hands. He will put them down if you ask him to in order to wash hands, eat etc but must have them by his side.

He hates and I mean hates hair cuts and having hair washed (although is getting better with the later). He doesn't like wearing hat and gloves in the winter.

We have been having him assessed for past year and paeds, psychologist, speech therapists and OT's don't tend to think he is autistic but we believe he may be on the spectrum. They are continuing with the assessment.
