Getting SPD diagnosis
Hi I'm the mom of a 3yr old daughter who I think has spd. When I went through the checklists I checked off nearly all the hypersensitive traits in every category. It was through early intervention for a speech delay that I even found out there is such a thing as SPD. Since it was mentioned by both ST and OT to me I have done a lot of research and spoken to her pediatrician who also strongly suspects SPD.
Is there some special test or anything that I need to have done to get an official diagnosis? I really need something official for school to help the teachers understand her better I feel. I'm still learning so much about it and have been reading so much over the past 6-8 months.
The biggest reality for family came when she had an IV put in place this month and freaked out not over the needle but over the band aid and tape. For 20+ min she screamed about it and had a full blown melt down until she fell asleep from the anesthetic and then it was the first things she mentioned when she woke up and another 15min or more of meltdowns until the nurse finally took them off.
Anyway any help would be appreciated from anyone w/ any experience.
