My 6yo has SPD. When she was originally diagnosed at 2yrs old, they told us that her joints ere loose because of SPD and something to due with a lack of brain messaging the body's joints to tighten in development. HOWEVER, they told us it would improve on it's own by the time she was 5. We have done joint compressions for 4yrs now. Finger joints to toe joints. No improvement. She is 6 years and two months and is still like a floppy piece of spagetti. Her Pre-K...

I've already seen some wonderful progress (particularly on the school...
I'm wishing you luck and peace with this, Mama. It sounds like we're going through some of the same things, so please do update as I'll have you in my thoughts.
Of course we're held up yet again because her last vision test wasn't complete and she did poorly so they really needed all the info filled in. I have to take her to the school nurse tomorrow for a second vision test. It is really frustrating to count on so many people to help MY CHILD's need be met. I'm the Mama. I want to do it myself. I'm afraid if I tried she'd lack in so many resources and early intervention, though. She's been in speech and OT since 2yrs and...
We started with our pediatrician whon then referred us to specialists in the area for our secific needs, He was so responsive and quick about getting us in to who we needed to see.
You have all offered me so much information... i will be going through this thread tomorrow with my noted and a pen to put some thoughts together using the right lingo and to ask for a few things mentioned. Thank you for taking the time to reponsd. Please keep the posts coming.....
My daughter is 6 now and entering Kindergarten in the Fall. To be safe, I met with the principal and case worker on Thursday to discuss Savanna's current struggles at home, and the needs her Pre-K teacher has concerns about. All of these struggles/needs are social, emotional and sensory based. She is very age-appropriate academically. We now will be going forth with in-depth testing to establish a new IEP. I am so concerned that a bigger focus will be on academic,...
After I typed it out here, I got thinking more clearly about it. It was my MIL. She was just here for way too long of a visit and left this past Friday. She's a negative person and then also having her here put a strain on the family routine and balance. DD was more effected by it than I realized. She has always, since a wee babe, thrived on structure and routine. I had a sit-down with her last night to talk about how things will be getting back to the norm...
I dunno what happened to my sweet lil' girl... she was the most positive and life-loving little girl until over the past 4-5 months. Her choice of words are so negative and sometimes hurtful. There are moments when the little girl shines through....like during nightime lullaby and a random hug... We stay positive here... I don't know where this negative talk is coming from. I miss her positive outlook. I don't like the negativity in my home. My younger two are...
I have got to AT LEAST get my oldest DD's room dealt with today. I'm going in with a vacuum, trash bag, and a WIDE open mind as to what gets thrown and donated!
