Autism or Sensory Processing Disorder
(Camp Verde, AZ)
My son was diagnosed last year with autism. Now he is four years old and in preschool and I feel that all of the problems that he faces daily are all sensory related.(hair cuts, dental appts. picky eater, gag reflex, pubic restrooms, can't be wet,is always cold, has anxiety, literal, shys away from unexpected touch,doesn't transition well, very emotional, doesnt understand his or other peoples emotions, up and down activity levels ) He is very verbal. I want to help him and after finding this site I feel like I have direction. I don't feel like I was given a plan to help him with the Autism diagnosis. Could he have Sensory Processing Disorder and not autism.
