Having trouble geting my childs doc to see Sensory Processing Disorder
My child doesn't like to get her clothes wet, has to change even if it's a little spot, short attention span, covers her ears when an airplane flies over head,a weedeater is turn on,a loud truck goes by, stops my dishwasher from running or my washing machine.
Wears the wrong clothes for the seasons ...like dresses too hot for summer..wants shorts in winter. won't eat a lot of different food because of texture, I feel she has sensory processing disorder... the doctor wants to treat her as adha because of what a teacher wrote in her notes but, her teacher did not in cluded her sensory issuses. i do not want to start meds for something i didn't believe she has. she has a speech delay she can't tell me if she is hurt. this scares me.
I think i'm going to try for a second opinion before i put her through this. both of her O.T's say she has sensory problems I even did the test. but because i have a teacher who does not understand my daughter i'm going through this. it's awful. have any of you had this problem?
