Sensory problems

My son was an ex-preemie born at 28 wks. and 5 days at 1lb. 8 ounces. He was only diagnosed with premature lungs and hypertension.


At this time my son is 2 yrs. old and 11 months almost 3 at the end of this month. He is not speaking yet? He does try all at his own pace. When we go out he cannot tolerate high pitch screams or crying from other babies. He seems nervous, scared and begins to cry with anxiety.
I have to pick him up and hold him tight massage him and he calms down.

Based on what I explained do you think he has a sensory process disorder? Can this be treated?

sensory issues oversensitive hearing

Hi i have a boy that had same problems with noise. if you look up tomatis or listening programmes, you can then get the jist of why they react the way they do. Reduced proprioception have a look at that as well.

My son was not born premature, i see alot of mothers with who ask this , i am not an expert but i think this is a coincident. Most children with these kinda problems are under the autistic umbrella. You should look up author Temple Grandin, you will fin alot on utube. Good luck.
