Hello, My name is Catherine, I have a 12 year old son who I suspect has Sensory Integration disorder and a 3 year old Who has been diagnosed with it.
I have been a lurker for awhile and thought I would join in. I have a 3 year old boy who was diagnosed with sensory Processing disorder at 1. He had a speech delay because he couldn't slowdown and focus at all. He got a special ed teacher and OT with Early intervention and it worked wonders with him. He's in a preschool program now, with both special needs kids and regular kids. He gets speech therapy and OT at school. His progress has been amazing. He talks, He's toilet trained, and the nonstop tantrums are gone. It does get overwhelming, and you do mourn the loss of the perfect child but he's loving and affectionate and very sweet (when he's happy) lol. School helps me too because these kids can be very high needs and it gives me a bit of a breather. anyway I thought I'd introduce myself and say that there is light at the end of the tunnel for this.
