Could this be SPD?
Ok.. daughter (4.7 years old, full time Pre-K) got diagnoses with ADHD with LD Februray 2nd
Daughter finally saw the school speech therapist on February 10th (she was on waiting list since before Xmas since school and I had concern with her speech ability) and she asked the teacher (after seeing some behavior of daughter) if DD had also been diagnosed with SPD since she seems to not be able to control herself in regards to put things in her mouth.
So when teacher told me that, I went on net and look under SPD....
Found a "check list" and realized she "seems" some of the "symptoms" that comes back frequently:
1:) Putting everything in her mouth and sometimes chewing it.
2:) Sensitive to loud noise ( still dislike vacuum and/or big trucks,air blower and toilet flush in public bathrooms, she will cover her ears, and often says.. too loud and cover her ears)
3:) Never liked having her hair brushed, she always says that it hurts.
4:) Lately ( she starts to express herself more, so maybe she had discomfort before but couldn't tell me??) anyway.. lately, she will ask me to remove every tag from her clothes, and if her socks are misplaced she will get very distressed and will try to replace or remove them etc...
5:) could be age related, but still have trouble getting dressed, cannot button herself, cannot start zipper, having trouble putting socks and clothes.
6:) Potty training was quite long ( over 2 years) and she still has little accidents during the day from time time.
7:) Always thirsty or hungry and can say she is full after 2 bites but ask for more food 5 minutes later.
8:) Thrill seeker, always jumping, running, hopping, on ground of furniture, can spin very fast over and over....
And more also that I am uncertain.....
So my questions are:
1:) is this normal children behavior for a 4.7 year old ?
2:) is this normal ADHD behavior?
3:) should I be concerns with SPD?
4:) should I talk to my pediatrician about it and who should I ask to be referred to?
Thanks for your answers.....
