Peditricians missing the signs of SPD
by Sue Meadows
Finally, I have a diagnosis for my son with SPD. I have waited eleven years. I had three different Pediatricians and no one was concerned when I saw foods dropping from his diet beginning at the age of 1. I noticed the foods never came back. Finally a therapist at the school I worked with recommended me to Children's Medical Center in CT.
My question is why aren't pediatricians listening? We have been so frustrated for so long especially at family gatherings where our child doesn't it and it is noticed. Doctors need to be trained to know what the signs are. I am so happy he is finally in treatment one month before he turns 12years old. My husband isn't sure, but I always have been. My pediatrician knows now. Thanks,
