Issues with symmetry
I am the Vice Principal of an elementary school. We have a first grader who has been diagnosed with SPD, however there are times in his behavior that his teacher and others who have observed it, feel there is more going on than just that. One of the issues that has sent him off into long periods of crying and wailing, and eventually throwing himself on the floor, is a a problem he has with any art work he creates that isn't perfectly symmetrical. Other non-symmetrical things don't evoke this reaction (bulletin board hangings, desk configurations, etc.)
We want to do what we can to understand this child and assist him in every way possible, but we would like confirmation from someone that this can be attributed to his SPD. Parent thinks so, but to us there may be other things happening with this child. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
