I have a beautiful daughter named Madison who will be 3 in December. We noticed as soon as she started walking at 1... she always walked on her toes. When I took her for her 2 yr check up her doctor said she may need speech therapy. We gave her 5 months and did not see much improvement so we decided to begin speech therapy. Her therapist notice how hyper she was and that she was always toe walking. She suggested Madison should be seen by an OT.
I had never even heard of SPD before meeting her OT. She has shown some improvement but she still is talking at about 18 month level.They suggested that a psychologist come out on Monday to evaluate her. I am so stressed about my baby girl sometimes I feel like I have failed as a parent. If anyone has any advice for me I would really appreciate it.
