It's got a name, but does that make it better?
I am a 39 yo male, and do not have a diagnosis but based on the checklist it is fairly evident that SPD played a part in certain developmental aspects of my childhood. Not only that it also explained certain quirks that I thought were just a hangover of my childhood. When I first did the checklist it just brought all the frustration and anger flooding back that no one realised there was something wrong. The problem is I am a high functioning professional and was a high functioning child so my launguage and reading and comprehension are above average. I have learnt certain skills over time but handwriting, swimming and most fine motor skills are definitely pretty poor. I still have issues determining left from right, hand flapping when excited on my own and my hand writing is atrocious.
I guess I am at a crossroads where I am thinking is there anything I can do to rectify and build on 39 years of learned coping mechanisms?
