Parental Education on dealing with SPD children
My four year old daughter was recently diagnosed with SPD, more specifically Motor Planning. I see many things in our two year old that leads me to believe he will have similar issues. Anyway, the "melt downs" my daughter experiences, over seemly minor issues, have rapidly increased and my husband and I are at a complete loss as to how to deal. We live in the Boston area and are actively trying to find help. We have had her neuro psyc evaluation and the OT evaluation done. they can't start OT until the fall (although we may have to look elsewhere) so we're left to figure things out for ourselves for now.
Can anyone out there tell me if there any classes of sorts that help parents like us learn how to deal with this in a more productive way than nature has equipped us with. Our frustration levels are high and patience is low...not a good combo! Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
