what sensory issue bothers....

your kiddo the most?

Gabe is afraid of flushing toilets. He won't even flush the toilet at home...and if the water drains too fast out of the tub it freaks him out too. In public I have to warn him before I flush the potty. I asked his daycare teacher if he does this at school...and she said he does.

The sensory issue that Gabe has that bother ME the most...is his constant seeking. He climbs everything...and smashes into people all the time....it's getting worse instead of better....and he is getting bigger...so it is starting to really hurt now...

Hmmm...I like that...what sensory issue do I enjoy the most....since Gabe is such a seeker he wants to be close all the time...which makes him a wonderful snuggle kiddo!

Hi-
Kaia is so sensitive to sound, so she is constantly saying "whats that sound, whats that sound". It is much better than it used to be but still there.

what bothers me the most is her feeding issues, becasue they started off as a sensory issue and now it is behavioral so now I am the one who has to get her over it.

I love that she wants to be hugged all the time, she is constantly asking for tight hugs which is nice.

Anything food related. It's been his biggest challenge since he was a baby, and what got him diagnosed at age 17 months. He just turned three, and his diet is still pretty limited, but he has improved a lot.

What bothers me most is other people's reactions/viewpoints on SPD. My husband's uncle actually rolled his eyes at me when I started to explain to him what it meant! No, I am not a neurotic mother who made this crap up. I really wish I were- it would be a lot easier to fix!!

BTW, I am new here. Hello!

New here as well. hello! I have 3 , 2 boys and a girl, 7, 4 and 2. Our only issue is food...but food x a million.


Both boys eat next to nothing..and nothing healthy.


When my big one was 2, we went to a million therapies....but to be honest we have learned to adjust.


The very hard part for my big boy is seeing him in social settings....pizza party, cake...he cant even smell certain things.


My 2 year old eats bannanas...so I am thrilled. But thats about it. he is also very small, so we have concerns about his growth. We should have stock in Pediasure!


if i had $1.00 for ever dr. that said...let them make a mess of it.


Medicine is also very hard and they both throw up every time.


A few months ago my 7 year olds friend was teasing him that he didnt like hot dogs, so he wanted to try one. You can imagine my excitement. He tried one and literally chocked and screamed a threw up. heartbreaking.


Nice to read others...nice to know I am not alone.

I would have to say when he cannot stop running around, knocking into things, headbutting/ramming into us. It can be very stressful. That and he goes through periods where he has difficultly coping. He wakes up, is oppositional to everything (and I mean everything) and is either angry or cries over even the simplest things.

Mine has the same issues as yours bebe, he is always throwing himself against us as hard as he can, I've almost had a black eye before from him throwing his head back against me (and he's 2). Has trouble coping throughout the day--defiant of everything. The worst is when he throws tantrums and bangs his head on the floor. Plus I'm always afraid he's going to hurt himself with his daredevil stunts.

The best--he eats ANYTHING (fortunately), and he loves to get tight hugs (only when HE feels like it though--otherwise doesn't want to be held).
