New behaviors in 8 year old...communication problems.

by Kris Cocca
(Stratford, Connecticut)

My son is eight and was diagnosed with Sensory Integration Disorder at age 5. We have been to OT and have done fairly well for the past three years. We have learned to deal with the behaviors and he had done so well at school. The past few weeks however he had started having issues with communication. Won't answer questions, seems confused about feelings and doing the right thing. It has escalated and now he seems to think he doesn't love us any more. I have talked with my pediatrician and am waiting to see a pedi psychologist. We are very frustrated and concerned. He has never had this issue before. Anyone out there have these issues?
