It breaks my heart to see him at the park and is scared to interact with other kids or when he is approached he screams he does not like to be touched that much and nobody seems to understand him but me I cry all the time my friends don't understand I have no where to turn how can I help my son if I cant seem to get pass his problems? If anybody has any advice I would appreciate it thanks Wendy.

do you have any groups offered by your OT's office? or have you tried searching for highly sensitive or spd on meetup.com? it sounds like you need a mom's support group (they are AMAZING...i went to my first one a few weeks ago and i am HOOKED!) and i have seen they offer classes for children to help them learn to socialize with others. you are not alone, many parents and children understand your struggles. at the very least there are groups on babycenter.com and here that allow you to validate your feelings to make you feel less lonely. good luck!
