SPD home and school behaviour

Emily - posted on 10/07/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hi everyone. I have a 4 year old daughter who has SPD and anxiety. I have read a lot about kids with SPD acting out at home only and "holding it together" at school. I was wondering if anyone else has the opposite issue . She acts out and struggles a lot at daycare/preschool but at home she does quite well. Rare meltdowns and really the opposite. I find this with any social outing... Big groups etc. she struggles outside of home.

My (almost) four-year-old son is similar -- an angel at home and aggressive at school. We just got the SPD diagnosis and began OT two months ago, so I still don't have a lot of answers yet. He's also much better with older kids than he is with his peers. It seems like the preschool power struggle is too out of control for him, as is the excitement level. He gets wound up and can't wind down as quickly as the others. I'm hoping this will lessen, not only from the OT sessions, but also just with maturity of him and his classmates.
