Non-verbal 3 year old, SPD only or Autism/SPD
My son is three years old and Non-verbal, it is clear he has SPD but has not been diagnosed for Autism.
He has good eye contact, communicates via (PECS) picture exchange communication system, enjoys to cuddle and follows direction once he's sensory issues have been calmed.
He was premature 26 weeks and a "toe walker"
He does walk on his tip toes and at time appears to be "Stimming"
for very short periods but comes out of it very easily.
I wanted to ask if anyone has a child who has been diagnosed with SPD and is non-verbal. I feel as if the specialist are having me come back for more testing until they are convince he's Autistic than just stating its SPD or anything else
