My 14 month old just got an unofficial diagnosis of SPD. Does this sound like your child?
MRDD came out and said our 14 month old is functioning on a 7 month old's level. They believe he has a sensory disorder. He starts OT and speech next month. He doesn't talk at all. No mama or dada sounds. Half the time he acts like he is deaf and can't hear us. he crawls to the edge of the bed and it's almost as if he doesn't realize he can fall off and get hurt. He HATES to have anything covering him up like a blanket. he also will not wear footed pajamas (He never has) and also hated to be swaddled from day 1. he obsessively matches toys and then picks them up and bangs them together. He does not "play" with his bigger toys at all. he enjoys little rings from a stacker, small balls from toys, and spoons and refrigerator magnets. he prefers to have two of those toys to bang together.
He has always been extremely fussy, throws himself back and cannot be soothed. It is difficult to get him to sleep and he won't eat anything that is round such as peas, unless they are mushed up. He also does not listen to simple commands, and has no reaction to other people's emotions. I'm sure there is more that I am forgetting! Please comment and let me know if you think this is SPD or just a delay. Thanks!
