GLAD I FOUND THIS GROUP! My SoN was diagnosed with SPD, touretts and other conditions (late) about 4 yrs ago. outside of his neurologist, P.T and psychologist and support staff at school, I don't know anyone who understands or has even heard of this. I have to explain it everytime. And I'm not sure ppl even believe it to be so inclusive and limiting.
Does anyone else have issues with video games? i suspect he is really drawn to them for the sensory effect somehow. im just not sure how it all goes together, on one hand he can't cope in large crowds or deal with clutter and on the other...he gets calmed by video games? I justdont know how to understand the sensory imput and repeat it or wean him off it in another way? any insight or experiance here? on the flip side he can become calmed and engaged by nature books, pictures of sea animals. he is 10. sometimes i feel like he has to live within one extreme or the other to calm himself.
