Find a Conversation

DS is in pre-preschool this semester at a local Montessori program. The other day, a teacher from another class came into our room to ask our teacher if she had any gum. She said a few years ago she had a SID child in her room with an oral fixation. They were told to try gum and it made a HUGE difference for the child. She currently has another child (without DX) that is exhibiting a similar behavior and just received permission from the parent to try gum to see if that helped calm the child. The entire conversation was very positive and everyone involved was excited to try to help the child have a more positive experience.
I was very pleased to find out there was such great support for this child thanks to the experience of the SID child previously. I know many parents are frustrated teaching the school systems ways to support their child. I just wanted to say THANK YOU. The hard work is paying off, the teachers are learning, and there is more support for the children following you.
