I have a 9 year old daughter who is apparently dealing with SPD. She has never liked being messy. She is sensitive to loud noises and commotion. However, it has just been within the last year that things have become severe enough to interfere with our every day lives.
She has insisted on wearing the same set of clothes for several months now. The same pair of underwear, the same shirt and the same fleece jacket. She has the jacket zipped all the way up to her mouth. We visited Florida this past week and continued to wear her jacket even on the beach! Despite several attempts to get her into other things she continued with the same outfit. She needs her cami pinned in the back to make it tight enough. She insists on wearing tights over her underwear to avoid the underwear moving during the day. Bed time is a different story, she sleeps with nothing on.
Help! I am tired of fighting her, so I have resorted to allowing her to wear the same thing every day.
