Our daughter is going to be 4 yrs in Nov 2009. We recently were told about SPD and after reading about it...Wow...I really think she has tactile issues. Dressing is such a major, major stress everyday. Shoes and socks bother her so much! She will not wear any pants at all! Let alone tops or shorts. She will only wear dresses. And IF she did wear pants she had to have the waistband low (below her belly button).
She has a favorite blanket with very, very soft fabric that she constantly "pets" while watching TV. I don't think she even realizes she is doing it.
I hear get her OT, but through our Pediatrician? Or privately? not really sure. I didn't go and have her see the county intermediate unit for early intervention. They said she was perfect! I explained my problem with sensory issues not developmental. So, I am waiting to hear from the IU.....but it's been a while. My husband and I just want our daughter to fine peace in getting dressed each day. She cries and screams before she even puts her clothes on. It's just so hard on all of us. As you should know because you also have a SPD child.
