Does my 5 yr old have SPD?
Since my daughter was 2yrs getting her dressed has been a challenge. She was very picky on what she would wear, and around age 3 she began saying certain clothes were "too tight". I assumed it was a "terrible twos" thing and she would grow out of it, but she has gotten more frustrated and refuses to wear most of her wardrobe now. She picks clothing out at the store, tries it on and likes it, then has a melt down when she puts it on the next day. Now it seems like she would rather stay home in her pajamas then put on her clothes. Also over the past few weeks she has had melt downs over her car seat harness. No matter how much we adjust it its "too tight" and she freaks out. Could this be SPD? Do SPD symptoms increase with age? It seems as if the symptoms are multiplying and we aren't sure how to help her.
