Is SPD reversible?


What type of schools assist with SPD as it seems remedial schools are not yet addressing the issue?

Will my child be able to go to mainstream school at some stage?

SPD Not Reversible
by: Anonymous

We don't believe SPD is reversible, but kids do attain a level of adaptation & tolerance of the sensitivities that persist to plague them as they age. Our daughter has learned how to help herself in a lot of instances, especially school. She is eleven years old now.

As far as schooling, you are your child's best advocate. You will have to teach, coerce, and beg at times, the school system, the best way to go about teaching your child. You will have to have a plan of action, a list of your childs needs, a solution, if you will, of how best to structure an environment so your child can learn. This can only be achieved if you sit, observe, and place your child in a learning environment yourself. Read as much as you can about the Sensory child, books are available at your local library.

If you are capable, have your child assessed, go through insurance. They will be able to help you further. Also, check into your school's "no child left behind" rule to see what they will provide & what is offered.

Hope this helps. Good Luck. Remember, usually no one will step up to help, you have to advocate for them.

Not knowing whether or not the severity of SPD symptoms in your child, I can say from experience that will improve over time. But I think it can not be reversible. Greeting
