SPD Son and School Complaints
My son just started preschool. He is 3 1/2 years old. When he was accepted I told them about his sensory issues and tried to explain as best I could what that meant. First 2 weeks of school went GREAT. No real issues.
Then last week we get a letter from the teacher saying that he is refusing to keep his shoes on at school, taking both his shoes and socks off every chance he gets and refuses to put them back on. During circle time, he is refusing to sit still and often gets up and wanders around the room and won't return to his seat when asked for. The OT/ST told us this was because he has an auditory delay.. teachers say he's just downright ignoring them.
He is an extremely picky eater/drinker and refuses what they offer most days at school but he's SOOOO SMART.
He has already mastered all the academic goals for his class for the YEAR but due to age requirements can't be moved up to hard class work.
There are 30 children in his class and he is often over stimulated.
We had him evaluated by EI before he turned 3 and because he wasn't academically behind he didn't qualify for services but I feel like his behaviors are getting worse and spiraling and the teachers are asking for help and I don't know how to help them :(
When we consult with the therapist, we're told that it's sensory related but not what to do for it.
