Two for Two and Defeated


(lincoln,ca)

I have a 9 year old son that as a baby would not be held did not breast feed for more then a couple minutes no matter what, etc etc. He was totally textbook sensory issues. There was nothing then to say what was going on so they were not able to help him much. He still suffers with quiet a bit of the issues stated here. I am desperate to get him therapy but there is nothing available. His is so bad that he is failing socially and in school.


I now have a four year old daughter who also is extremely sensory issues but in ways that are totally opposite of her brother. She cannot handle sound, touch, lights etc. She gets tired easily and rather be home then anywhere else. I am desperate for help for my children. IT maybe to lat for my son but its not for my daughter. Her sound issue really affects her life greatly.-desperate mom in northern california

Starting OT hope it helps
by: Anonymous

My niece is a OT at a Sensory clinic, she said if the dr could write the RX for therapy due to problems with motor skills. She said the dr should not write Sensory problems because some insurances do not see Sensory as a "real" diagnosis. My grandson age 7 has been diagnosed with SPD and he just started at a SPD clinic. I am so happy because he is so smart but does have problems at school. He has a hard time finishing school work in class and his behavior with teachers and students is not good. I am really hoping OT will help him. His parents are thinking of taking him out of school and doing home schooling. Does anyone know if SPD child usually end up doing home schooling? How long (average) it takes doing OT before the child is "cured"?

not too late

It's not too late to help both your children. You need to find an Occupational Therapist that works w/ kids w/ sensory issues. You will be so glad you did. Good luck.
