My 3 1/2 year old daughter will be going for an evaluation the beginning of February. She has had many developmental delays from very early on, but it has just become recently that we noticed that things were not getting better. We already know that she has some sensory integration dysfunction and she is getting OT for that. It has become rather stressful for me because my husband is at a job where he cannot take off for doctor's appointments, therapy, etc. which are being scheduled on a weekly basis. So far my employer has been working well with me, but I don't know how long that will last. We also have a 6 yo girl and a 3 month old boy and I feel like I am not giving them the attention they need, and deserve, because I am focusing on all of this other stuff with Ashlyn. I also am struggling with potty training, but I just don't think that she understands the concept and I also do not know how to discipline her when she does something wrong. I guess that I just need to vent to people that understand what I am going through. Any suggestions or advice are also welcome at this point. I am stretching myself too thin and I really want to stay away from that breaking point!
