5 1/2 year old son
I am not sure if my son has a SPD but he does have some of the symptoms described on this website. I am looking for answers, confused, frustrated, sad and worried about him. He is a beautiful, happy, energetic 5 1/2 year old but I feel something is not right. He repeatedly wets his pants. When we ask him why he did not go to the bathroom he always says that he did not feel it. He has a short attention span and has difficulty staying on task in any organized setting such as team sports, my gym, karate class, preschool etc.... He can pay attention when the subject is something that interests him like being read a book that he enjoys, doing a science project, playing a game but in school he is always being reprimanded because he does not sit for circle time, he is touching others, he is constantly moving. He often will spin in circles at his Tball games and does not follow any of his coaches direction without being constantly reminded to pay attention. He can be sensitive to loud sounds, he complains that his eyes burn him a lot, he cab be difficult to get to bed at night, he is a very picky eater refuses to eat vegetables etc....
He also has an amazing ability to remember information and to comprehend information. He is performing on target academically but we did hold him back from going to kindergarten last year.
Any suggestions or comments would be much appreciated.
