Thank you for this site
My little cutie pie
I am a 33 year old single parent. My son is 5 and has been having difficulties for years. He was better when I took him out of daycare and he was being taught by my cousin alongside my niece. Once he was placed back into the day care environment, his problems began again. The school wanted to say he was ADHD, but after seeing a therapist she assured me that he was not, but didn't really know what the problem was, environmental or physiological/biological.
After looking over the checklist there are certain things I have always known about him, he was always hypersensitive to sound. He never liked to bathe, he still does not like showers and I have to run the water with the door closed. He does not like to get hair cuts. He makes noise for the sake of making noise. He has tantrums almost constantly, He does not do change well at all.
Those were the things I new were strange, but I thought it was because he had constant double ear infections and eventually tubes were placed in his ears, but the problems persisted. He is a very picky eater (no grilled cheese sandwiches, no PB& J, no chicken nuggets, no sloppy joes and the list goes on). He is constantly reprimanded for his behavior, but he just told me on last Thursday, "Mommy, I am trying so hard to be good, but I can't. That is when I started praying and that is how I ended up here!
All I had to go on was the ear problems and the Lord spoke to me that it was sensory and to go to the internet and look it up. Well here I and most of the things on the check list he exhibits. SO you tell me whether GOD speaks or not? But that is not the point. I am just grateful that this information was available and I now have something for his educators to look into and evaluate so we can help my child. Again, thank you for this site!
