Hi my name is Katy, I have been a nanny to multiple families for 16+ years... I've pretty much have seen it all. I have been dating someone for 8 months with a 4 year old daughter, who has not been officially diagnosed with SPD but was brought up a few weeks ago in preschool. ( since this is her 2nd school, due to getting kicked out of the first and starting 5 half days at the 2nd and dropped to 2 half day a week with a special aide) I myself have said since day one there was something wrong other then what her parent's calling her a spoiled brat. I brought up SPD and it made my relationship worse, cause here i am saying there is something wrong with your child ( no parent wants to here that). That is why i am so happy that the school has brought it up. It is so stressful on him because hes not understanding it, nor does he want to. I have done so much research but don't know how to stop her from hurting other people and children. The screaming i ignore, but hitting, scratching, biting and spitting is not acceptable. Time outs don't work,taking things away also doesn't work.... i have tried the holding her hands many times, getting down at her level and talking to her... but its tough when she wont even have eye contact on a normal day with anyone and continues to scream, spit, hit, scratch and throws herself on the floor. please someone help with any advise.
