Nope, but that is because I don't know what the camp is! LOL Could you give some details on the what / where / when / how of the camp please? If they will accept the exemption may depend on who / what runs the camp.
Yes,a doctors note or medical exemption! Personally I would not cut his hair while asleep due to the lack-of-trust issue. UNLESS you discuss it ahead of time & let him know that because he needs a haircut for school you will be cutting his hair while he sleeps so he won't have to feel it. I'd do it over a weekend so you have several nights to work on it.
If you have a space where he can use the trampoline safely go for it! I also buy my kids gifts based somewhat on thier needs. I try to find something that they would enjoy but will also be helpful KWIM?
An indoor swing, giant bean bag, soft climbing toys like in preschools, spinning seat, are all good for sensory seeking kids.
My mother & sisters in-laws took several years to even admit that allergies were relevant & real.... another year+ for them to accept the SPD diagnoses. And now we are beginning the process of getting a full spectrum assessment for the aspergers diagnoses he needs (for school reasons). So yeah I understand!
What I would do for now is just let your Dad know that he HAS TO follow your parenting guidelines with your child. If he understands or agrees is not relevant...
My son is 7. I learned of SPD when he was nearly 6 & he started OT for sensory issues soon after his birthday. We were unsure of the need for the official diagnoses process as well, even though we knew he most likely has aspergers from his behaviour.
Now he is really struggling in school (he attends a Waldrof school so much easier on him socially than mainstream) but the school administration refses to do much becasue he is undiagnosed -- the special ed person even...
Most of what I have heard is from extended family members going there. Thier births were horribly managed & the husbands were treated lower than dirt, excluded from everything & not allowed to even hold baby (unless mom took baby & passed to hubby). After the first birth at the Native Hospital each one of the ladies I talked to chose to have thier kids elsewhere. The new hospital out here in MatSu is pretty good from what I hear, have a birth tub, babies room in,Dad...
I live about 45 minutes from Anchorage.
The only place I have heard horrible things about is the Native Hospital. Just Ugh, never heard anything good about it. But not an issue unless you are native & plan to use thier coverage.
Personally I have had my kids at an independant midwifery in Wasilla & it iw great!
