My 7 y/o daughter was diagnosed with SPD at age 5 and has received OT off and on since then. She's got classic proprioceptive dysfunction, and hints of other dysfunctions - she doesn't sleep, doesn't like socks, has a hard time staying focused, tying her shoes is a chore, prefers to eat with her hands, and is incredibly sweet, smart & sensitive - you know the drill.
Last night while reading before bed time she started making a flicking movement with her hands, which looked kind of like a tick. She repeated the movement several times before I asked her why she was doing that. She explained that sometimes she thinks about something so much (right now the obsession is dogs, dog breeds, anything dog related)that she visualizes the object and has to fling it away. Okay, I've come to accept SPD and even embrace the quirks, but this one freaked me out! It feels more like OCD than SPD - though it happened at the end of the day, when I know she is particularly wound from the days stimulation...
Anyone else have a similar story to share?? I've put a call in to the Family Dr. and her OT for a check in, but I'm hoping this isn't as freaky as it sounds!!
