I dont know what to do!!!

My 7 yr old son does have SPD but the thing is I live in Saudi Arabia and the sad thing is there is no help here for him , some one who can tell me exactly what is wrong with him.No one has said he is autistic but maybe borderline in the spectrum .
I am my own doctor for my son and
I keep looking for doors to open.
I luckily found an occupational therapist dealing in SI who has given us some hope that with the right treatment he will be ok but I still dont know what is wrong with my son. All I know is he is very sensitive to taste, he seems to be younger than his age in learning and speech and developing. Otherwise he has no physical handicaps.
I found this site as a ray of hope in helping me .
Everyday is a struggle with him. He hates to brush his teeth and wont take oral meds when he is sick.Its a nightmare when he gets sick he has to have intravenous meds which are painful and stressful.
He is the light of our lives , a sweet little boy just like any other child struggling to say what he wants , trying so hard to learn.
