My son Ian, who is 9 years old now had been diagnosed with SPD since he was 2 1/2. He has had speech and OT therapy through school since then. My problem is that the school system wants to diagnose him with Autism and I keep fighting with them regarding this. I know that SPD is not recognized in school but I am now very frustrated because the things I thought were helping him are not. I do not think they are really treating SPD just what they see. I am also very frustrated that no one for years could not point me in the right direction for my son. He does have an appointment with a Psychiatrist to reevaluate for SPD because everyone is telling me he does not have SPD.
My biggest thing is no one wants to seem to help my son and myself on what we should do and/or go. Thank you for this site, really gives me some perspective.
