13 month old just diagnosed with SPD
My 13 month old DD was just diagnosed by her OT with Sensory Processing Disorder. She is not walking or cruising furniture yet; just prefers to crawl and will pull up on furniture. She needed to be "taught" where her muscles are for crawling. She has also had severe constipation issues since about 5 months old and is on a high dose of lactulose medicine to help (though it is not helping).
She loves being cuddled; is not afraid of loud noises and generally goes with the flow, but does like her routine, especially at bedtime. The OT said she does not have an awareness of her muscles really in her legs for walking. Does anyone have any similar stories regarding kids with SPD and severe constipation? Is there a link between these two?
