SID emotional issues
My grand child has sensory integration disorder. Her Mother has also been told she may have autism. Everyone tells her what her daughter may have but nothing seems to go farther than that. Her pediatrician put her on 50 mg zoloft. School stated she did not meet criteria for a 504 or any help in any way. Her writing is illegible. She is constantly teased about her penmanship by her peers. She has been humiliated by teachers because she has trouble bouncing a ball. She has "odd" movements like rubbing her fingers. She talks loudly and asks too many questions, she is told this by her teachers.
She is in fourth grade and the bullying has now carried to the playground. She has become the person in the class that every one teases, calls stupid, and tell her that no one likes her, and the list goes on. She asks what is wrong with her, because no one likes her.
My daughter doesn't feel comfortable approaching the school again because they made her feel as if she shouldn't have bothered them by asking for testing. She is also concerned if she tells about the bullying, the kids will only find another way to ostracize her.
My grand daughter has no self esteem, confidence, and says she doesn't fit in anywhere. My heart breaks that she just get pushed along with out help. My daughter does not have a lot of money to try and get more help.
Is this a typical situation that results when someone tries to get help for their child?
