My question is, if it is not real why are there so many OT's out there trying to help the all the kids like my daughter who is now 16 and finally diagnosed with sensory integration dysfunction. After being told she has generalized anxiety and after four years of psychological therapy that was going nowhere we finally found answers in an OT testing center by recommendation of her current psychologist none the less! This was our last cry for help and with the information they provided we realize now that her anxiety goes hand on hand with her other issues including what we thought was just behavioral.
We are finally starting to get results with the OT, more results than all the years of psyco-therapy she had! Even her psycologist himself announced that he was getting nowhere with her, but the first 3 weeks with an Occupational Therapist and Physical Therapist have brought more improvement than anybody could before.
We can finally have the beginning of a better relationship with our child because now we understand her disabilities more than ever before. I have seen her smile more lately than I have in years and now we have hope again that she can be functional on her own and go away to college like she always dreamed!
