My son Jack who is 10
My eldest son has from a very young age had very demanding behaviour problems. He had a delay in his speech and play. His speech is adequate for his age now, but his play is still immature. He gets very frustrated by a lot of things, like ie foods, doesn't like certain textures and taste, says it makes him sick. Hates noisy busy places. Will ask people to be quiet when he is concentrating.
Clothes can be a big issue, as he is always complaining about his socks. Doesn't like wearing tight clothes and doesn't like wearing short sleeves. But will wear his school uniform which has short sleeves, but if you could see it, it looks worn out. He doesn't like brushing his teeth. Jack has never been a child you could cuddle, he will move out of a 3 seater chair if somebody else sits down. He is not very good at sports PE, he doesn't seem to be able to coordinate his movements very well. Or ride a bike. He states on more than one occasion, that he doesn't have any family, but nosy people living in his house. He always addresses himself in his full name, even to me. In the last two years he occasional has started to call me mum etc. If on the telephone will call me by my name not mum. These are just a few to mention.
In his school, he is above average in his school work and they have an answer for all our concerns, because they know he is different from other children but not enough to get the professionals in.
We keep asking for help, because at home his temper tantrums and emotional outbursts are disrupting the rest of the household. At school he just switches off and can appear vacant, with no emotional output.
He is moving up to high school next year, and I worry that he will not be able to cope, firstly the school will seem massive compared to where he is now it only holds 55 kids.
As per usual awaiting pediatrician and school psychology to assess. I am hoping that these issues will be addressed.
