My DD: (almost 3) Extremely active and an extreme extrovert. Very talkative, very inquisitive, always two inches from your face, volume war zone. She has extreme emotional reactions to most things, temper tantrums, emotional meltdowns, and can be very physically violent. She is getting very little, to no sleep, and having nightmares. Her stomach always hurts, among other things. She also seems sensitive to wind in her hair and water on face/eyes. I could give a long list of other symptoms and concerns, but basically my husband and I are emotionally and physically drained. Most days my husband and I are left exhausted, and confused.
So desperate to find help and answers I made an appointment with a psychologist, and an OT. She meet with the occupational therapist last Thursday, who thinks she does have some sensory things going on and gave us some exercises. We haven't had a follow up meeting or written report yet, so I really don't know exactly what her "findings" are. This Saterday we have a meeting with a physiologist who can administer an evaluation, but said that she can't really be tested for the OE until she is 5, and that is what I am the most concerned about.
Soooo, all of this to say that the OT said something about her diet, and that some of the kids she works with make huge improvements from diet changes, and some don't at all. Considering that my DS, now 4m, seems to be diary, gluten, and soy intolerant...I though maybe....and how lucky would I be if all of this could be changed with a diet adjustment. The person she is recommending (the "diet specialist?") is booked for a year, and she is trying to get him to do her a favor, but in the meantime I was wondering....anyone know the diet lol? Or about what the diet is suppose to be? On a side note, has anyone done OT for OE and did it work/help? Open to other unexplored suggestions or ideas of what might be going on. Thanks!!!!
