How do i know if my 4 year old has sensory processing disorder
My 4 year old son grinds his teeth at night, is a very fussy eater - does not like bitty food, won't eat food because of colour, etc. - is sensitive to certain noises and will often hear noises we don't. He is also falls over a lot, has poor fine motor skills and is scared to ride a bike (but ok if you push him). He doesn't like having his hair washed - though he loves combing and having his hair cut.
On the other hand, he loves messy play, loves cuddles and kisses, makes friends easily and has already started to learn to read and do simple arithmetic - all at his request, not ours.
I'm not sure if these are indicators to a sensory processing disorder. He did have delayed speech, and though he has improved greatly will need to probably go back to a speech pathologist this year to prepare for primary school.
