We're doing pretty good here. We're still waiting on an official diagnosis, but in the meantime speech therapy is helping a lot. She's still not communicating really and she doesn't understand directions yet, but she names TONS of things. When we go places she's always pointing out dogs, cats, rocks, trees, cars, fish...and other words she's learned so fat. I love it.

my son was diagnosed with CP at 11 months. When they started bringing all of the therapists in they started suspecting that he has SD. We are still in the process of trying to figure out what kind it is (if he has it). I haven't talked about my sons special needs yet. He was just fitted for leg braces. When we went to the Dr. because of his delays, I was not expecting them to tell me that he has CP. Now with the therapists, I absolutely wasn't expecting them to tell me that now he might have a sensory disorder. It's so much to take in. I feel like he is improving though, all of the time. I'm sorry that i'm ranting, like I said, I haven't talked about all of this really with anyone. quote

I'm glad that he's in therapy and that they are working towards answers for you. Feel free to rant all you want! There may not always be someone around but it feels GREAT to get it out!!

thank you. DF and I have decided that its really on a need to know basis. We dont want people treating him differently because of their ignorance (if that makes sense) Right now he has physical therapy and child development. Next they are bringing in Occupational therapy and they already told me that he will have speech therapy at 18 months. I really dont understand the sensory disorder. I've tried to ask as many questions as I can but I guess im not really understanding (or asking the right questions). There was a whole period of time where I couldnt even hand him to my DF without him screaming for me. It was frustrating. He has gotten so much better about that though. Every time he notices me leave the room though, he freaks out. At night time, i've had to start putting him in the swing to put him to sleep. He has no coping skills what so ever. Its very hard. They have even said that I need to watch for signs of austisim. I dont think he has that though.

A service coordinator called me today to talk to me about LO, and she says he sounds like he will qualify for early intervention services (which the regional center will pay for)... he's going to be evaluated next week and we will go from there. I'm so happy we're finally on the path to get LO the help he needs.quote

Hey all. Stopping in to say hello and see how everyone is doing.
We've been good. Pretty busy with life in general.
Malakai has been doing better with different textures. At least trying a few new things. I've realized he likes really strong flavors that give a lot of feedback.
And his Spio suite is amazing. So happy it was covered by the insurance. It really is just what he needed. He seems to be more grounded and having more 'good' time.
Anyway hope every one else is doing well.

Hey everyone.. my son hasn't been diagnosed yet but they are thinking autism or a sensory disorder... What were the signs for your baby's?
My son has extremely melt down fits, crys when over stimulated(and by cry I mean has a tantrum..I.e. in Walmart, anything with too many things and sounds going on) he is extremely sensitive to changes...also he has been in speech therapy for 9 months almost, improvement but slow..and when they did an evaluation he was over 25 percent delayed in everything but gross motor

ive been wondering about my son and this disorder. the biggest thing i notice is when you touch the top of his head he jumps.. even when he knows your right next to him. Its only his head being touched that makes him jump. Also he is sensetive to temperture. Wont eat icecream or anything cold.. Doesnt like too hot of water in his bath.. doesnt like a hat on his head..
plays rough with other kids... hits and slaps them constantly but does it with a smile on his face everytime?
he goes to early intervention but theyve never mentioned it.. should i ask for testing?

Hi ladies. I wrote in here a few months ago about my son Landon possibly having SPD. Well, he was evaluated by a psychologist yesterday to rule out Autism and see if he has SPD. He doesn't have any form of autism (huge sigh of relief) but he does have sensory issues, so he's going to be needing OT and behavioral therapy (along with speech therapy because he is speech delayed)...
Just wanted to update and talk with other mama's that have kids with sensory issues. Is your child in therapy and if so, does it help them?

my daughter is 4 and her school said she might have this..luckly she doesnt have temper tantrums but she can read other peoples emotions even if they dont say anything..and they want to get her in to speech..she is also very sensitive to loud noises...heres what the dr at school said strengths..claire is a very sweet and loving child and is very well-behaved and cooperative in the class room..concerns are claire exhibits articulation errors which make her speech difficult to understand she has immature grasping skills...possible sensory processing issues...claire will approach peers at time of play but tends to drift away in a few ...quote
