Oh, peekyboo, after all you've been through with Maura, I hope it's this simple and, well, workable. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
|My question is--how does this type of problem/delay happen--what caused it? That is the question that drives me crazy and I may never get an answer to.|
|yeah, i was also going to mention the link with sensory integration. read The Out -of-Sync child and see if anything else meshes.
if this is what is going on, i highly recommend therapeutic horseback riding at some point.

I've learned there's two degrees of sensory issues - most people recognize the ones where the child is ripping off clothes b/c the seams bother them, or crying b/c the noise level is too much for them. But the opposite end are those who seek out stuff. The ones that are touching things, mouthing things, running their hands through stuff. That's Maura. But it's not really considered a problem I think b/c there's no "treatment" for it. Which is slightly annoying seeing as I would love her to not put stuff in her mouth! She's almost worse than our puppy
|I don't know if you've tried this, but I just wanted to suggest maybe trying brushing or spinning or a weighted blanket to give her some serious sensory input and to lessen her need to seek it out through putting stuff in her mouth. Trying to head the need off at the pass so to speak.|
|I'm glad you're feeling so upbeat about this. I "hope" it works out to be this, of course not because I want something wrong with her, but because a real diagnosis can give you some peace of mind and a direction to go.|
