Sensory Disorder for my almost 3 year old?
For the most part my daughter has been considered "normal", we are noticing however as she is getting older and communicating more some "Quirks" in her behavior. For instance, she hates having her hair/head messed with. She bawls and shakes and even shrieks through washing her hair, brushing it, putting it in pony tails etc. The second these activities are done, she's easy to calm down, and loves seeing her hair done, but the process itself traumatizes her and has since she was old enough to have enough hair to "fix" everyday.
The other things we've noticed as she's getting older is that she refers to herself in 3rd person MOST the time, or will say things like "Help you" Meaning "help me" but because we ask her "do you want us to help you?" She repeats the words she hears, not adjusting them to the situation. She also will repeat things NON stop till you acknowledge her the way she thinks you should, she will tell you she sees a dog, bus, stroller, truck etc 2 dozen times until she gets the "answer" from you she's looking for. If you don't answer her correctly, or if the wrong person answers her, she will keep saying it until she is in complete hysterics.
She is having a difficult time potty training, and refuses to "go stinky" in the potty, she will "Tinkle" (her words not ours) but wants a diaper on at nap or bedtime so she can go, she has no issues peeing in those diapers as well.
She also shows no interest in learning her letters,numbers or anything else requiring sitting down and looking at numbers or letters etc. She will let us read to her, but will often take the book away wanting to do it herself. She gets very flustered if you correct her on a letter she's showing you or numbers etc.
Those are all the things i can think of for now.... do you think there's a reason to be alarmed? Should I bring these issues up at her 3 year check up next month? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
