Mom and Psychotherapist
by Corey's Mom
I just about cried when I read the criteria. In my profession, I have a few clients that have been diagnosed with Sensory Integration Disorder; however, they have other issues which are addressed in therapy. My son will be 8 in June, and for 4 years we have seen every darn specialist trying to figure out what is going on with my son. It was absolutely heartbreaking....And the looks that you get from school officials, as if he's spoiled or attention seeking. Yeah...well he is attention seeking, but he's not doing it to get on your nerves.
Ever since I've came to this website a few weeks ago, I've been educating myself so I can help my son. I plan to attend a conference in 2 weeks as well. His developmental specialist has been supportive. We have an appointment at school tomorrow, and I'm not looking forward to it. Is this disorder real....Oh, definitely. Ever since finding out this information, there are moments where I cry, wishing I knew earlier...or...FINALLY! I don't know how many items I checked off the check list, but it was ALOT! Bless you and the website and all parents and professionals who are treating this beautiful angels. Thank you!
