We just started brushing 2 days ago, so I'm also interested in what others have to say. DS1 (diagnosed on Tuesday with SPD) is really calm during the brushing and for a few minutes after, they goes SUPER hyper...
I come to this forum (usually lurk) and find all of you mamas such an inspiration. You are endlessly researching, learning, experimenting, experiencing, fighting, challenging, hoping, helping, praying, encouraging--I could go on and on--all for the love of your child. I would love to hear about all of your struggles to get your child the help they need/needed, hear what you've done to fight for a diagnoses or just a little understanding, hear how many trips you've made to...
Marta, I came across this when researching SPD tonight and instantly thought of your post: "The person may make their own noise, in an attempt to block out other unexpected or untolerable noises. By controlling their sensory input, they feel better." So your son may have an uncontrollable urge to make noise in order to process the noise of a book being read aloud. Just a thought.

I live in Oregon, and we began working with early intervention at 2 (just a few house visits to discuss my concerns and the early intervention process), but after he turned 3, we had evaluation with early intervention with 4 of their specialists and he was placed in the Early Intervention Special Education Preschool program--a joint EI and public school program...

We get home and he goes in his room to play. When I went in to check on him he had that white car and two...
Thanks so much for the reply. : I guess I'm scared of the challenges at hand and of what will come. I'm worried that I won't have enough to give, or that every time I loose my patience, I makes things worse for him.
I wrote a post the other day because we were supposed to get in to see the neurologist and I didn't know what to expect, but it snowed that morning and we had to cancel (we live a few hours away from the neuro and have to drive over a mountain pass to get there). So I was nervous to see the neuro, but glad to get some guidance or help understanding my DS. Now we have to wait until mid april for an appointment and I'm already so desparate. A little background on 3.5...
So after a 5 month wait to get an appointment, we finally get to see a neurologist in the morning. Initially, we got referred becuase of a slight hand tremor my 3 year old son has, and because of his speech delay. I've since become increasingly concerned about him (sleeping problems, lots of behavoir problems, anxiety). I'm convinced he has sensory processing disorder, but I was just reading about 47XXY/Klinefelter syndrome and he seems to fit the description (including...
I'm posting this for my aunt who just recently seperated from her husband. He has been vebally and mentally abusing her for years, not to mention having afairs and taking VERY very little role in the care of their 13 year old daughter who has Aspergers. He has been harrassing my aunt, calling her up to 10 times a day to scream and swear at her and has been telling their very impressionable daughter HORRIBLE, untrue things. My aunt struggles everyday with her daughter, to...
