Is Therapy Working??
I am a mom of a wonderful 5 year old girl. For the last couple of months we have been working with an OT. I have paid well over $1000 out of my own pocket because our insurance does not cover sensory problems.
It seems everything I have been doing (the brushing, the exercises, and music therapy) are not helping. In fact the problem seems to be escalating. I don't know what else to do to make my little girl happy.
There is not a stitch of clothing that she will wear willingly (underwear, socks, shoes, pants and shirts). I can literally see her crawl out of her skin when she has to put clothes on. It did not become a problem until she went to preschool (I guess cuz she was just naked all the time at home).
She was colicky as a baby, has always liked to be naked. She is also very sensitive with sound and smell. If she likes a smell it can put her into heaven. But if she doesn't like it, it can make everyone miserable.
She also has some coordination problems. A family member once said "Wow she just ran through the whole back yard without falling!"
She does not have problems at school, which I am very happy about. She holds it together but then lets it loose at home. We are a family in crisis. I have researched on the internet and I just am overwhelmed with what to do. Financially it is a strain to keep going to the OT.
Should I just keep going? What do I do?
