I really could use some advice!
Hi, I'm new here but I just wanted to offer you some support. I know what you are going through my son is 4 years old too and my husband refuses to see that my son has SPD. I have been secretly taking my son to his OT appointments. I understand how difficult it is to be in your position and not have any support. You are being a great mom by supporting your son and addressing his needs. I don't know why men sometimes find it so difficult to accept that their children need assistance and therapy to deal with this disorder. I'm not sure if counseling is an option, my husband doesn't believe in counseling but if your's is open to it that may help. I'm sorry that you are going through such a difficult time, please try to be strong as I've found that children with SPD are very sensitive to things around them. I hope that things get better soon.
Hi, I'm kind of new here too. I have a 3 year old son with Sensory Integration disorder.Is there any way you could get your son into an integrated preschool program? he could get all of his therapies at school and your husband would just see preschool. My husband doesn't see a problem with our son either but as I told him, it won't hurt anything he sort of lets me handle it and doesn't do anything against it. Good luck. It must be very difficult.
Hi, I don't post here often, but I felt I needed to respond to your post.

I don't know much about your son's specific diagnosis, but I have worked with several families over my career that had a similar attitude as your husband about their children's diagnoses.
