Finding the right doctor
Our son has been diagnosed by an OT to have Proprioceptive Dysfunction and Tactile Defensive. However, the first doctor a Psychiatrist gave us an infomercial for this diagnosis. We at least had a foot in the door for occupational and speech therapy. Seeked another specialist,a Developmental Pediatrician, which understood the sensory integration, but left his diagnosis as a behavior problem. With this he sent us to another therapy and then would reevaluate later. Both speech and occupational therapists recognize he does have the original diagnosis,so we are looking for the right physician/specialist. Part of this relates to his school will not recognize interventions provided by an OT.
