Hi :) Welcome to the board. The first thing you would want to do is have her evaluated by an OT. Either through the school or privatly for Sensory processing Disorder. it is a non invasive evaluation. They usually just watch the children and have you fill out a sensory profile. If she is found to have it they would most likely put together an OT plan. this would be activities which would help with her sensitvities. The activities are usually fun for the children and they show improvemnt fairly quickly. As for socks I think i may be able to help. there are seamless socks u can buy online also try turning them inside out :) I HTH

If I were in your shoes this is what I would do. Go to the library and check out the book called The Out Of Sync Child. read it over and then you will get a great idea about SPD. If you feel the school is capable and willing to help then go for it (not all schools are). If not look into a private OT to do an evaluation. I had to fight my daughters school district for two years to get basic treatment. Some schools however are wonderful :) Feel free to ask whatever you need I don't mind answering :)
