My son is 4 years old. He has always been different but up until recently i thought it was just normal and he would grow out of it. Over the summer I really began questioning why he did the things he does and why he acts the way he does. At his 4 year check up I talked to his doctor about his behaviors and oddities. He went with the wait and see approach. the doctor wanted to wait until he was in kindergarten then to see if he changed. I was not thrilled about that at all. So i contacted our county special education co-op in November. They tested him for speech and took a bunch of info. I talked with the phycologist and after the testing and reviewing the info I had given them they said he MAY have some sensory issues, ADD, some behaviors the COULD put him on the autism spectrum scale, and MAY have some proprioceptive issues. My son just started pre-school in January and this last week his teacher sat down with me and asked if he had any sensory issues (I had not mentioned any of my other convo's to her at this point) and she continued to explained why she thought he may have some and gave me some tips.
