The out of sync child is another good resource. Both of my children (and most people IMO) have some sensory issues and it doesn't always lead to a dx. Could you take her to an OT instead of a...

First thing I would do is get a re-evalutation. Talk to the teacher, see what suggestions she has for you. Head to a teacher supply store and pick up some supplies. Someone there will be able to...

I don't think a stroller is weird but pushing it up and down those hills is not going to be great. An umbrella stroller is not going to cut it with a 5 yo IMO. Maybe there is someone you can borrow...
