Possible SPD symptoms

by Dianne

I have a child who is currently undergoing therapy and assessment for possible Aspergers, however is displaying considerable symptoms of SPD instead. Has anyone encountered or heard of SPD symptons displaying as sexualised behaviour in young children of 5-8 years of age?

Yes, I think there is a heightened curiosity. But, I don't think its really sexual. I think they are too young to really have that connection in their brain. Does your child fit all or most of the Aspergers symptoms? I think sometimes its a catch all. Especially for smart and sometimes manipulative kids. The SPD part of it is big. possible the touch part in connection with the possibly sexual stuff.
