Out of control emotions
(carstairs, AB Canada)
My son is 7 years old and since he was a toddler has had very loud wailing emotional outbursts. This seems to happen at the drop of a hat and can take a while to talk him down enough to even be able to understand what he is saying. We talk about feelings and how he is feeling, but honestly I wish i could do more to help him. He has melt downs in school, home and everywhere. He was diagnosed with ADHD and OD and behavior problems. But after reading the checklist I find that a lot of his issues are more fitting to SPD and never have heard of it before. I am glad to find some answers that dont make me feel like a failure as a parent and that maybe now I can get some proper help for my child. Thank you.
