We have known for a while that ds has sensory (under responsive) disorder Doctors and Ot's have confirmed this.
Ds has a bit of everything as his vision is very low so his touch and hearing is really out there.
But yet knowing he has it and trying to work with him so he doesn't always have a melt down is something else and that's when he is not distracted and he actually hears us and pays attention or not zooming off to do something.
Plus with ds not talking it is hard to communicate with him like i understand him but he doesn't ask for this he more babbles and says one or two sometimes three word sentences if he feels like it.
Ds has an non-active pituitary gland no adrenal gland no immune system and optic nerve are thinner then they should be.
So If your child does have a sensory processing disorders i would love to hear from you and see if you have any tips or how you go to get around meltdowns?
and any stories would be great to hear.
