My 22 month old son has been diagnosed with SPD and I am grateful to finally have answers after months of crying at pedi office, EI finally brought it up. I do it all on my own as DH works 80 hours a week and NOONE will watch him because they are scared he will hurt himself or someone else. they will take my other two but not him, my mom can watch him for maybe an hour or two but only at my house were its gated off and I have everything child proofed. He throws himself on the floor, slams his head against the walls, has broken his crib a dozen times slamming up against it, he hits and pushes constantly. Its so hard as you ladies know, but my thing is I have tried to leave him in daycare before one day a week to see how he did and I got a call within an hour so I have no idea how I will be able to go back to work as planned when he turns 2. I know we would meet the income guidlines but I didnt know if SPD was concidered a disability or not?
