Husband doesn't support child going to OT
My son, age 6, was diagnosed with SPD in July 2008 and we have been taking him to OT two times a week since. My husband has always said that our son had some quirks or was a little different but now that we have figured out the cause, he doesn't think OT is necessary.
My son's main issues are crashing into things, being very loud, no stranger danger (getting better), no respect of personal space and just being fearless. He is a sensory seeker. He also seems to hit my husband a lot but not me. Why is that?
As soon as I found out about SPD, I tried to find all the info I could to learn about it but he hasn't and it bothers me because I think he just doesn't understand. Everything I've read talks about how important OT is but to my husband, it's just playing and he can do that at home. I'm always trying to get him to go with us but he says he doesn't want to just go and sit there.
He's ok with me taking him but he thinks that there hasn't been a lot of change in my son. I want us to be on the same page about all of this and want him to hear all the things I hear from the OT. He thinks OT is a waste of money. Has anyone else had a problem with their spouse? I would love to hear from someone so I can know how to handle this.
