Hi, my son was recently diagnosed with Sensory Integration Disorder for his OT. He has some very strange behavior and definitely stands out from a crowd of children because he cannot stay still and focus on anything for very long. He has low body awareness and therefore tends to run into people (unintentionally) and fall all the time. He needs to have a para watch him in class because he needs a lot of redirection to stay focused. I was wondering if anyone else has a child with SID and could tell me if the children outgrow this over the years? What can I do for him? He's doing gymnastics for to work on his low muscle tone and takes swimming (although he doesn't really pay attention on either classes). I've just signed him up for karate because I heard it's great for discipline and obedience and helps keep them focused.
