SPD Worse in March/April
(Long Island, NY)
My son has SPD (mostly tactile), tourette syndrome and now OCD. I have noticed that they all get much worse in March & April. I had him checked for seasonal allergies and his doctor said he had no allergies to pollens, grasses, dust, molds, dander, etc. He is 10 years old and he thinks it is the stress of having to take the state ELA and Math exams. He missed school yesterday and today because he can not get dressed (plus he is ticking from the tourettes). I am trying to get him an OT to work with him. I think he needs strategies on what to do if he smells something bad, his clothing hurts, etc... Any thoughts, opinions, or help? Any advise on diet or supplements? Thank you.
