My daughter (just turned 3) has many of the symptoms, but I am really confused because her reactions are not very severe. For example, she doesn't like getting her hair brushed, but she doesn't yell and scream. She just whines a bit and usually allows me to do it. It is the same with tooth brushing. She doesn't like wearing sox, but she will put them on if we are going out.
She had OT as an infant and was diagnosed with low muscle tone. She is a very fussy eater, often fatigued throughout the day, poor motor planning, unsure of herself in physical activity, is fun and bubbly at home, but sometimes has difficulty mixing with other kids outside. She also sometimes doesn't respond when people talk to her - almost like she doesn't hear. At other times, she is very alert.
She's not the happiest kid in the world, but she doesn't seem like she is suffering terribly (at least I pray she is not). Her behavior causes some stress in the family, but its not very bad. The house is just a little tense sometimes. The situation seems borderline in almost every area. Any ideas?
