Does anyone else have a spouse that refuses to recognize SPD is a legitimate issue???
(Pinellas Park, FL)
My husband has been in denial since the beginning. Just because our son is so very very smart he thinks that there's nothing wrong. He blames it on him being an only child, or that I am too easy on him or any number of reasons except the truth. He refuses to go to therapy with us, ever (we have been going for over a year).
In front of our son he goes back and forth on the topic. Sometimes he will refer to the SPD and ask if he has done his brushing or whatever the case may be. Other times when he is frustrated with our son's behaviors he will announce that "you can quit using the sensory stuff as an excuse because it is all crap".
It is breaking my heart. Our son knows the truth, he is after all scary smart. But I know it hurts him as it hurts me.
Have any of you experienced this? Have you been able to bring the other party around? If so, how?
Thanks so much, LM
