WE have a 12yr. old daughter with DS named Shaney. We wonder why we've never met another child with DS like her, with her issues. I started reading "The Out of Sync Child". I'm so sure she'll get diagnosed with SPD. Shaney has sleeping issues since infancy. Also,at about 3 yrs. old she used to eat her own poop, sand, and dirt. Thank God she quit that.
Shaney is constantly going, even without a nap and almost no sleep at night. Love to swing for a long time as high as she can. But on a porch swing she can't hardly stay awake. Riding in a car put hr to sleep. Had to do that for a few years to put her to sleep. Hates messy hands. Gosh, I could go on and on about her funny ways. Well I hope to get moving on this and help Shaney right away.
