I live in West Jordan, Utah. I have a 14 year old son who struggles academically, socially, and emotionally. Over the years he has seen several different doctors and therapists and has been on many different medications for conditions such as depression, bipolar, OCD, ADHD and anxiety disorder. None of these have produced any significant results in helping my son.
Desperately, I went on my own search for answers. I've been thrilled to learn about SPD. The more I learn the more I am convinced that this is what he struggles with. It has been the only thing that explains all of his behaviors. My frustration comes from the fact that all the info I find seems to be geared towards younger children. I have found very little info regarding teens with this disorder. Is it possible at this stage to help them overcome this challenge? Are there any resources available that are geared towards their specific age group? Everything I've found seems to be geared towards early intervention and/or young children. What can I do to help his high school teachers know how they can help him? Thanks, Jan
