Hey there. My daughter is 2 1/2 and at first all we knew about her was that she was having developmental delays, gross motor delays, and was a sensory seeker. We started noticing all this when she was about 4 months old, 3 days before her 2nd birthday she was diagnosed with Autism. Before that her diagnosis was PDD-NOS and ADHD. She has so many different sensory issues. Her biggest one from the time she was born, and to this day still is being flipped upside down and swong. Sounds crazy, but she will throw herself backwards till you do it for her.

Hey! My son was born premature and he has delays with crawling walking and is a sesory seeker so bad he's rubbed his hair off on the back of his head. He is in our local program called early intervention. It's trough our health department and they come to our home. He gets pt, ot , speech, and special instruction 4 days a week. We've been receiving therapy for 6 months and see a great deal of change in his sensory needs. Please check into therapy if you are not already receiving it. God bless! Your lil boy is a cutie pie :)

My cousin had/has a serious dely in his development (wasn't even sitting by a year) he had tests to see if he was autistic, and countless other tests

They took him off of Gluten! (found in wheat) and it was like night and day!!! My cousin is also 4. 7 months ago you couldn't understand him when he was talking, he couldn't run or jump... and now he is a totally normal 4yr old!!!!

Put your kid on a gluten free diet for a month and see if it changes anything. They can also do a simple 'allergy' test to see if that is the problem. Good luck!!

i just finished reading the out of sync child. this book helped me alot understand better what my son is going through. he's done very well in ot, that he no longer needs it more then a once a month check for 10 minutes. he's iep also has improved alot. he's kind of a loner, but seems to be doing better with the kids at school now. he's mostly a sensory seeker always needing that big bear hug and swinging to the sky.

Hi my son is 5 1/2 and is also a sensory seeker, although with help from his occupational therapist and reading books about it, I have been able to understand it a lot more. The books have been a godsend. Joseph is affected in most areas how about you x
