Absolutely SPD is real! But finding ways to help our child has everyone in the family nuts. She cannot stand clothes that touch her, shoes that fit, items that "feel bad" etc. Because clothing is such an issue she often looks, in the words of her father, "like we found her under a bridge somewhere."
This disorder is bleeding over into social problems in school, as the other kids tease her mercilessly. She is a very bright 8-year-old, but is now struggling with reading, and it seems to be related to her social adjustment. I am curious to know whether any of your kids with sensory problems were conceived by parents with drug problems or during a time of drug use.
