    we just got our OT report on my DS#2...very hard to read.

    fine motor skills are delayed due to non participation

    that he is sensory sensative and sensory avoiding, he processes oral, touch and vestibular information differently to what is typically expected. and that he has a low threshold for sensory stimulation. which explains the violent outbursts.

    Good luck with the listening, how much to hire it if u dont mind me asking?
    Try and look online for chewable necklaces. I have seen them and they are designed for this. They look much better than a dummy and have a very rubbery feel to them. I also string teething rings on ribbon around a child's neck while they are playing and when they attempt to mouth other things I place the chew toy on thier lips and say, "this toy is for chewing only". These things do help. You can also string the chew tubes around the neck as well.

    I am currently pregnant with my first but I do work with children and have been to a few courses on autism spectrum disorders and sensory processing disorders. Hope you don't mind me jumping in but I gathered the information to help parents and I don't want to limit that to just my parents from work.

    Does you son do OT? Haven't had a chance to read through yet, sorry. If so do you find it helpful? We had to do the theraputic brushing with him for 2 minutes every 2 hours for 2 weeks and I found that did help to sort of ground him a little and calm him down. Has ur OT got you to do that at all?

    both of my sons have autism and SPD, we have done the brushing with my older son (it was a nightmare) but it certainly helped, we still do it three times a day for him now after the intensive 2 weeks. and he bounces a lot less when he walks, and is calmer.

    we havent done it with my 2 yr old yet. we tried, and he lost the plot, he turns 3 in a few more months and will try again then, i'm not looking fwd to it tho. >_<

    we do speech and OT for both yep.

    Just read through the thread for everyone!! The brushing is definately intense!! I'm sorry its late and I can't remember who but someone mentioned life without barriers being of help? What sort of help can they offer, also I wouldn't mind getting my son into a private speechy as I don't think he sees enough of his public one. Money is an issue though, would spd qualify for a carers payment through c'link?

    I'm new to spd, so at the risk of sounding silly I'm going to ask anyway..

    Will my son ever speak properly? And will he ever fully understand what I'm saying to him? I just want to wrap him in cotton wool.. DS has other issues aswell and I almost lost him at 19months old, he ended up on life support, that was the most horrible feeling in the world..

    Now I want to cherish every moment with him but he freaks out alot and wont do much, he prefers to play in his own

    Sorry for rambling..

    The combination of your sons problems might qualify you for carers payment, all you can do is ask for the forms, fill them in and hope u get approved?

    We go to private speech and ot for both, my first son missed out on funding, and we are still waiting on funding for my second son, so its been $280 a fortnight for them..


    I dont know if he will speak or understand you. Has he been dx with a specific language disorder? Speechy should be able to answer that question for you *hugs* im so sorry you have had such a hard time. How heartbreaking to go through something so scary. Your poor little boy *more hugs*

    Life without barriers, talk to ot about them, see what they say, life without barriers want a letter and pricelist from ot about whats required, and why its needed, and how it will help. Look them up on google and see if u can get a number to call.

    Life without barriers can provide funding for resources, or for actual sessions. But im not sure what the requirements are.
