Will my baby have a normal life or will she always need special services?
I have a question about this disorder. Is this at all curable? We dont know if our daughter has any other diagnosis as she is too young to diagnose. We DO know that she has SID, and we are trying to find a good OT for her. My husband and I go through days where we just give up and think that our daughter has absolutely no hope and will just get worse. Today is one of those days and I just need to know if there is a chance that she will be "normal" as in, is there a chance she will she lead a normal life have normal friends, relationships and jobs without having special services all her life(if SID is the ONLY diagnosis she has)? Or will she be (I HATE to use this word but not sure how else to say it) retarted? Is this what SID is? I can't find a straight forward answer.
She doesn't talk, doesn't mimic us, not waiving & clapping, and most of all has very limited communication. She has lots of sensory issues described on your site and was evaluated by a SIPT certified OT who confirmed it. She does a lot of eye contact and knows her name, but autism hasn't been ruled out yet as she is too young to tell.
I read about your story, but the links to the rest of your story dont work. :( .. How is your daughter now? Does she lead a normal life besides the little "quirks", is she noticeably different, would the stranger be able to tell something is off? I'm so glad your daughter is doing so much better.
I'm so stressed, confused and depressed at this time trying to understand what's going on. I wish someone would tell me there's hope and she will come out of this and be able to lead a "somewhat" normal life. Do you have any advice for us? thank you so much :) again.
