I've wondered for quite awhile (years) if Rachel was a child with sensory issues. I ignored it because I had bigger issues w/ Max and couldn't take the time to focus on her. Now I have the opportunity and am beginning to really focus on her.<br><br>
I don't have a huge long list of stuff for rachel like I do with Max, but here's what I can remember:<br>
No tags (I have to cut them ALL off and have had to do this since she was about 2.5)<br>
No pull-over sweaters<br>
Will not eat mushy foods: mashed potatoes, oatmeal, cream of wheat<br>
FREAKS out over touch (not sure if this is sibling rivalry he-touched-me! crap or what)<br>
Very rigid in her own way (though not as severely as Max)<br>
Socks MUST be short (Max's MUST be long!)<br>
Seams MUST be straight<br>
Pantyhose are a huge issue for her (seams are never right, they feel weird, etc)<br>
Messy and doesn't seem to care<br>
VERY intense - screams over the most minor slight or injury<br>
MUST sleep w/ teddy bear (Cuddly)<br>
Chews her shirts <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br><br>
When the dev ped's office staff interviewed us about Max earlier this summer I remember saying, "Wow, Rachel, too!" <b>many</b> times. Of course NOW I can't remember what the heck was sending up red flags. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
Anyway, I guess I'm just looking for feedback from you guys. SID/SPD is still a relatively vague dx in this house. I haven't researched it nearly to the degree that I've researched autism.
