I have a 16 year old with sensory integration disorder. He was treated at a child but frankly, for whatever reason, his progress was limited and he was dismissed by the OT. I was told that they couldn't do anything else for him and since his issues didn't seem intolerable I moved on. I was told that he would grow out of it.
He would eat better when his body started growing and he was hungrier, he would shower and enjoy touch when he was a teenager and liked girls. My son is 16 and doesn't eat any better, tolerate life any better, enjoy being touched by anyone, and seems to be on a general decline towards depression. I have him seeing a therapist and we are working on getting him to take the prescribed medication. Do you have any recommendations how a can help a 16 year old with sensory integration disorder?
