I have been after our nurse practitioner for the past few years crying, begging, frustrated and pleading with her to send my son to a pediatrician or some sort of specialist. i have stressed to her something is not right, and she has brushed me off and suggested i get my son a Councillor that he just needs to talk to someone.

I mentioned that he does seem comforted by certain things, it was then suggested i look into sensory. I am glad i did. after doing your checklist and seeing that my son got a check mark for roughly 75% of the items, it saddens me that he could have been getting help all this time. hopefully she will listen to me now. he is a sweet boy. Thank you for this check list, and for it shedding some light.
