Is it choice

by Kelly
(Wiltshire)

Please tell me why my child has such issues with such things as putting on uniform in the morning and have such intense meltdowns at thirteen that are now turning violent and yet return home from school and remain with her uniform on quite happily.


This is causing doubt of sensory issues with the professionals involved in our lives now due to the violence, I think they are trying to say my daughter can pik and choose and can indeed control her behavior, please help as I cannot accept this

Stressors
by: Anonymous

My 6 year old with SPD is the same way in regards to clothing. I believe his "inconsistencies" are due to his dificulties with change in general & also his general stress levels. The less stress the less complaints. Mornings are rushed. Weekends if we take our time & aproach it in a supportive manner he is more likely to put fresh clothes on.
