Need Help with my 6 year old
My 6 year old was diagnosed with SPD just last week. He is a major seeker. Non stop noise, movement, bumping, crashing and this is a very difficult struggle for his teacher as his noises are disturbing to his class.
We just started OT but the teacher is on my back everyday about him not listening and keeping quiet, she asks him to stop and he does for a little then he just starts making sounds and he rocks his chair. I gave her all the info to explain to her why he is the way he is and that we are going to do OT to help him to find a better way of channeling his noisiness, but seems like she is done with him. The kids in his class also find his noises annoying and tend to avoid him. This break my heart.
It is his first year in a Waldorf school so i cannot take him out now and put him in a main stream school because he will be way behind and he will obviously also make noises in the new school.
He is a good child but those noised and sounds is making me mad as well.
How can i help my son at school! What advice can I give the teacher, what exercises can we do, what kinds of medication can help, what tools do i need.
I am just lost, sad and so confused.
