Our OT said she couldn't diagnose, only a doctor can.
My son had already been attending Occupational Therapy for SPD for 6 weeks, when his OT told me that she couldn't give us a "real" diagnosis. She said only a doctor can do that, not an OT. So now I feel like I am back to square one, since I went to a DR. first, to get a referral to the OT (seeking a diagnosis). His school wont listen to anything I have to say about SPD, because I don't have a "diagnosis from DR."
On this site, the section on step-by-step what to do, it says to go to OT for diagnosis. It seems I followed all 6 steps and am now back where I started on the technical part. Does anyone know...is the OT supposed to be able to diagnose? Or only a psychiatrist? Where do I go next? I need a CNS.NOS diagnosis from a "DR", is what his OT told me. Any comments would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
