Hi,I'm new to this site, but I have read some of the stories and I find it in my heart to tell you my sons story.
To start off His name is Braxton he is 5 years old, He has been diagnosed with Sensory Integration Dysfunction. He just got diagnosed on 10-21-2008. He has went to OT one time. He was fine as long as he was running around playing with all the toys but soon as she started to do the brushing he went bes-irk and tried to bite her,hit her,and punch her. He was a totally different child.
OK I'm going to go back in time when he was born. He was a very fussy baby and when he was 2mths old he was diagnosed with hypothyroidism they started him on synthroid and he wasn't fussy anymore. I always knew he was different from other children but he was my first and I thought he just did things different from others
kids. He would line up his toys,spin things around,very organized,and I had him tested for Autism. One DR. said he had it then he got retested and the other DR. said he didn't have it. He outgrew all the signs of Autism.
So he went to PRE and they said he was testing way below his age and they put him into speech therapy. And this year has been one hard year his behavior has went down hill... he screams,hits,and bites ME. So that's how we got sent to this new DR.that said he has Sensory Integration Dysfunction.
All I want out of life is for my son to be OK. So does someone have some behavioral advice to pass along. I would appreciate it. Thanks to everyone and God Bless you and your wonderful family!
