My Daughter is 3.5 years old and I feel she has been dealing with SPD from day one. We are bringing her in next week to be evaluated at her pediatrician b/c it is progressively getting worse.
Every morning there is a struggle to get dressed. Any panties, pants or socks are evil to her. Which you can imagine, makes it difficult to get dressed. I have had to physically restrain her before to get her dressed to go to pre-school. Then the minute we return home she has removed her clothing and put on a nightgown and asked if she could take off her panties. The cold winters make her requests regarding little to no clothing difficult to comply with. She is in tears every morning having to put on panties and clothes of any sort and my husband and I are at the end of our ropes.
Any suggestions on home therapies we can do while waiting for her to be evaluated? I feel like people are looking at us like we are crazy and totally making a mountain out of a molehill when we discuss this issue. I think a lot of people feel as though we are letting her play us by her behavior - I just want to know what is the best approach. Thank you!
