I am so relieved!
by Christina Carboni
My 4 year old son has been having problems since he was born. I have been told that it could autism, ADD, ADHD,or any other number of things. However, i never felt that those made sense and totally explained his behaviors. When i finally had him tested with an occupational therapist i was skeptical because i thought i had heard it all before. I had no idea about sensory processing disorder.
My son has not been formally diagnosed but this is the first time that anything actually makes sense and thoroughly describes his behavior. It is such a relief to have a name and be able to identify symptoms of what is going on with your child. the weight of guilt has been lessened and i now feel empowered to be able to take charge and help my son. I no longer feel like i am a bad parent or that i did something wrong. I cant tell you how much of a weight has been lifted from my shoulders.
