Every other day fatigue, extremely low stamina=SPD?
My 13 y.o. daughter was diagnosed with SPD at age 6, and also has epilepsy, which complicates things. However, after numerous tests and visits to specialists, no one can figure out why she has such low stamina. For example, in the past few years, she has only been able to attend school for 4-5 hours per day, and only every other day! The school has been very accommodating, luckily, but as this leads to living what I call "half a life," I'm hoping to get some answers. The neurologist does not believe this is due to ongoing seizures or the meds, since that would cause the fatigue to be every day.
I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this in their SPD kids? Maybe they get overloaded with sensory input on one day and need to rest the next? And if so, what the heck do I do about this? She's getting to high-school age soon, and I don't know how she'll be able to make it in life on an every-other-day schedule. :-(
