parent teacher meeting

just had a parent teacher meeting, and my daughters teacher claims she doesnt see many of the sensory issues we deal with at home. this explains why the OT there seems like a flake. but how can she exhibit so many odd behaviors at home and not at school ?? at home she just isnt Rylee if she isnt crashing, spinning, jumping, sniffing, being loud, toe walking 95% of the time.... we are thinking of looking into private ot but really cant afford it. we have an IEP meeting coming up next month, any advice ???

I have heard some kids can fight to control it during the day and then unleash once home nice huh? OT is so expensive it stinks! I wish I could give you the right advice of what is best for you and your family, but only you know how much you can handle taking on. As I have said many times I had become my childrens ot and had to learn a lot, however now that they recieve treatment it's been a nice break. As for the meeting I would find the info online about SPD kids behaving at school and acting up at home and take it with you. I HTH

hi-
we have the same issues with our daughter, they arent seeing her sensory issues as well. we had to hire a private OT, we just couldnt let this go on anymore.

can you take a video of her at home and show the school it so they can see what you are dealing with? or maybe you can hire an OT just to do an evaluation at home and have her observe your daughter at school, then if she does a write up or talks to the school about what she is seeing it is an OT talking to the school rather than the parent?

i hope this helps

Hi.


Same thing happens w/ my almost 6-year old. What we think is that he gets enough stimulation at school so he doesn't need to crash around. It's the best answer we can come up with. Sure makes school vacations fun (kids are on vacation next week here).


Good luck,
