Backpack
by: Anonymous

My daughter is 4 years old. I asked an OT this same question, because it didn't matter what discipline I used, if my hands were full, she would run into parking lots. Her suggestion; a weighted backpack! Now I can do errands easier and my daughter stays within 3 ft of me in the store! And now, if my hands are full, she reaches up and holds onto my arm! I let her pack toys inside the backpack and if it's not heavy, I throw in a heavy toy! I am telling you it's made a big difference for us both! I let her pick out an extra backpack on her own, so now she can have one if the other one needs washed. Also, it's not a standard school sized one, it's a little smaller backpack, that way she knows what it's for. There are stores that sell weighted vests, hoodies, and other items that might help also. I also keep a fidget box in the car that's filled with small toys from the dollar store and a local sensory store. Things like squishy toys, the gak stuff, silly putty, spiky ball, balloons I filled with rice and sand, these all give her therapy too! This way her sensory needs are met and things can run more smoothly!

neurologic disorder?
by: Anonymous

As described in the post also covers the conduct of my daughter. If she has a near collapse can control themselves from danger. How can we classify and treat this disorder? I think not only the SPD. Ask advice thanks

I'm not sure what the best way to discipline for this would be. I'm interested in hearing more for my own sake since I can see this happening with my son in the near future.
