We have suspected my soon-to-be 4yo son has sensory issues for the past 2 years. Dressing is an on and off battle. Clothing is too hot/cold, "scratchy", etc. I struggle to get him out the door in time for school and lately it has been almost every morning he goes to preK.
He also has trouble with transitions, toe walks 95% of the time and is very "active" (meaning always moving, making noise), among other things.
We struggle with it because family members "don't see it" - they see the toe walking but just think he is a "difficult" child. He was getting OT, but the OT does not think he needs sensory integration. So I am stuck in this world right now where my husband and I know he has issues, but others are not willing to see them. I feel helpless at times, but try to keep pushing forward.
Would love to make some new friends here to have others going through the same, so we can talk.
