Our 8 1/2 year old daughter has an assessment scheduled with OT in a couple of months. After this process, is she going to be "tagged" with having SPD, or is that left up to her doctor. I've heard that SPD is not a medically diagnosed condition, so how is it dealt with throughout the whole process.
Also, how do I explain to her that she has this. I have just been telling her that we are going to get her some help with her not being able to stand tags in her clothes, etc. She seems pretty okay with it, but it's more than just that. Of the utmost don't want her to feel retarded or mentally challenged in any way, so I am being very careful of what I say to her, and around her.
Thank you for your concern.
