We finally got a diagnosis for our 8 year old and we are going to O.T. once a week. Unfortunatly that will end soon due to our insurance company not covering SPD, and that our insurance company pays 0 for things like this that they dont cover.
We are really making some good progress when it comes to self regulating activities he can pull from at home and school when he is having SPD problems. The new problem lately is just plain old bad behavior. But I guess it isnt really just "plain old" truthfully he is acting out and having more problems than any other child in his class. Most of it seems to be anger driven, and ultimatly when it gets bad enough turns into a sensory meltdown, due to the fact that he is a sensory seeker. So when he gets over the top upset and cant calm down it just serves to overstimulate him. He is big and strong enough now that I cant control him when he has a meltdown, it is dangerous for not only he and I but for my two younger children. I am so frusterated and sad.
