2 1/2 yr old with possible spd???
I am a mother of one 2 1/2 yr old boy. When my son was about 1 1/2 he had some of the red flag signs of Autism so we got him evaluated & they said there was no concerns. Now that he is older I cant help bt feel concerned with a lot behaviors he is having.
Here are some examples.... He is & always has been OBSESSED with cars trucks anything with wheels. Lately that is all he plays with everyday all day long. He not only "plays" w/ them but if you watch him he is just staring at the wheels going around. He is always rubbing the wheels on his face by his cheeck & mouth- he does this with other things too. We went to the park yesterday & he does not want to play on anything like he use to but rather wath all the trucks & cars go by. I cannot even get him a haircut anymore because he cannot handle the hair falling on him. He has had (kicking & screaming & crying) about 10 haircuts & with each time it just gets worse & worse. The poor hairdresser could not even finish this time around. He could swing & spin around in the swing for hours on end if we let him. When we take walks he doesnt walk but runs. Everything has to be faster & faster.
He has also been doing this thing where he runs by stuff real fast & look out the corner of his eyes. He will do this to anything he runs by. I tried this & it makes me dizzy & off balance. He still chokes on some foods because he will shove so much in his mouth & not chew all the way. I dont know what to do because I feel like something is just not right about these behaviors, but then again I have never been a mom before so I dont know if this is all "normal" behavior or something I should be concerned about. My son does speak very well, he is very smart, he has empathy towards others & does look you in the eye. Any suggestions & comments would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you. Rebecca
