Quoting KristaAnne:" I hate having to go with 2 kids to the pedi every time, alone. I hate rushing and I always seem to have to because my younger son loves to throw giant fits"
Oye. I know how that can be difficult! It can get overwhelming.
I found those 2 checklists. I found others but you have to pay for them and I don't personally see the point. If there are clear indications from those checklists, your pediatrician can then refer an Occupational Therapist to have them do their own evaluation and tests.
Here are the 2 links:
I had written A for Always, O for often, OC for occasional, R for rarely and N for never. How often can be a huge clue also. I would also write next to the lines things specific to the question if I thought it was required to specify something.
Ex: Your child covers his ears at loud sounds
. I would right A for always but would specify that it is always for a sound like a deeper voice, or a cart being pushed on the parking lot. Sometimes the tv can be loud and he would not be affected by it at all. But certain pitches even if not too loud will send him over the edge. Or many sounds at a time, like a room filled with people talking at the same time and music in the background.
I hope this helps.
