Hi..My name is Michelle and I have a son named John. He is my only child. When John was born he was a good baby. At the age of 3months ear infections constantly..tubes in @11 months..Did not start speaking until around 3yrs..then recurrent strep infections..tonsils removed. John went to Bright Beginnings from the age of 31/2 until 5 yrs old. Lots of speech therapy. Then came kindergaten. Teacher said he had bevioral problems. 1st grade pretty much same. 2nd grade got lucky with an excellent teacher who brought to my attention about asperger's. John is a very picky eater. He doesn't try new foods and when he does, he throws up, he will not wear blue jeans...hates the feel of them,does not read cues of other people if he is making them angry or something..no bounderies of personal space, he is a very touchy person, but when it comes to you touching him, he doesn't much care for it. He talks a lot about video games and things that he wants to talk about, and will totally ignore what others have to say if it is not important to him, does not seem to realize that there is a world beyond our little small towns that he is accustomed too. I took John in Dec of 08 to an Auditory Process Eval. , then the school tested him also. They have brought to my attention about this Sensory Integration Disorder, was wondering if anyone else has been given this assessment for his/her childrens behavior. I look back and wonder why I didnt see this before but just chalked it up to Oh..that is just John..Thank you for taking the time to read this post and any info, support, or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
