Where do I go from here?

I am not quite sure where I need to go from here. My lovely daughter is 3 and a half. She is in regular Pre-K and is doing fabulously. She had no issues with the changing of schedules, loves to eat most food, has small tantrums here and there and gets frustrated easily but gets over it quickly. She talks non stop about anything and everything, carrying on back and forth conversation as well. She is extremely social, but its obvious that it is not always appropriate. She is extremely lovey and loves giving others hugs and kisses, as well as cuddling. Does imaginary play. Her main and only issues seem to be Sensory. She flaps her arms when excited, hums sometimes when she eats, and puts her hands over her ears if something is too loud.

She is in occupational therapy 2 times a week for 45 minutes but that is the the only one she qualified for, and she barely qualified for that when we hard her evaluated. Her pediatrician ran some sort of Autism screening test on her that took around 2 hours, and decided she didn't qualify to go to the next level of screening.

What all of this is coming to is this... at her check up a few months ago her pediatrician says "She definitely has sensory issues which she is already in OT for, and maybe a touch of Asperger's or something" and shrugged it off like it was nothing. Just a touch of Asperger's or something? Should I be going to get a full blown screen and diagnosis done or should I wait? He said it like it was nothing. He isn't a non-nonchalant Doctor by the way... he is mostly on top of things and never puts my questions or concerns off like they aren't importing, so the way he said it sorta caught me off guard. What should I do?

Hopefully the sensory issues are all you have to worry about. And Because she is so young, OT should be able to help resolve most, if not all of those issues. You could ask for another opinion, but as a mom with a son with Aspergers, Tourette's, and ADHD, I can only say, I wish my son had been able to half as much as your daughter at that age. It's tough job being a mom, we never know if we're doing enough. trust your instincts, and talk with her teachers.

Hello, Reese. I am so sorry to hear about your daughter, and I so wish I had some suggestions to share! But I’ll certainly be praying for you and your daughter, asking the Lord to work in your situation and heal her according to His perfect will. I really hope you will quickly find answers to your questions. Good luck!
