Am I overreacting or is there a prob??!?!
LONG story short - we had our son evaluated by ECI for some concerns we had when he was 11 mts old. (he is now 13 mts), they came and he scored age appropriate for EVERYTHING. Lacking in gross motor (scored 11 mts) bc he couldn't yet walk (still can't). He scored between 11 and 14 mts.
The biggest issue that wasn't addressed then was his eating and sensory issues. So they gave us tips, we tried them all and none have really worked. So we called back and they said after describing his sensory aversions, that they can qualify him for the program based on 'tactile defensiveness'. Now, I feel like I am going to lose my mind because the more I google and read, the more I get linked to Autism and Aspbergers and I just don't know when to STOP. His problems are: won't touch or eat anything mushy like fruit or anything wet. He loves crunchy things. VERY picky eater. Hates having his hands sticky or messy.. hates things like dried leaves. So, ECI said they'll start him on the Brushing program (which I have just read up on)..... and of course I've also read how sensory issues are often co morbid (hate that word!) with other things, and I have to be diligent down the road w/noticing developmental delays.
He is a smart sweet boy.. can clap, knows 'where's your belly?' (a new cute thing!), says 'car', can kiss, drinks from a sippy great, cruises everything, crawls like mad, wants our attention, has awesome amaaaazing eye contact, listens very well.. and on and on. Am I overreacting to thinking he's up for a long hard journey ahead???? I need help, me thinks.
