Does my 11yr old have SPD??
My 11yr old refuses to wear certain clothes. ie Denim, and pants with buttons on the pockets, shorts of any kind. Shirts are worse, no tags is #1. He also refuses to wear shirts with any kind of logo or writing that might be bumpy. He hates the seem in socks and has now resorted to wearing them inside out for the past 2 yrs. When we want him to wear something specific it is ALWAYS a fight.
He also hates textures of foods. Especially fruit. The only fruit I can get him to eat is apples and occasionally watermelon. He also hates the texture of paper and wooden pencils so will wear his sleeve over his hand when he does homework and has to use a mechanical pencil. Homework always takes him forever and he gets frustrated really easily.I don't want to put him on medication if I don't have to but junior high and high school is approaching and a am afraid these things might really affect him later on. Any advice?
