I was just wondering if anyone can shed some light!
My sister has a 17 month old beautiful girl who is perfect, happy and active!
Over the last 3 months, she began chucking a tantrum as soon as she got home, and I mean as soon as she stepped a foot in the front door.
At first, it was ignored or treated as a tantrum but then she started banging her head into things. She would pick up something and hit herself in the head and then it wasn't hard enough so she grabbed something else.
We then noticed that what we used to think was cute may be a factor as well.....she wouldn't cross from one "texture" to another. For example going from concrete to grass or tiles to carpet. She will need to hesitate, examine and then sit down and crawl over it.....maybe!
Her daycare told my sister that they believe she has a sight problem because she couldn't (wouldn't) step over things.
Sooooo, my sister took the LO to the docs, assuming that she was going to get her eyes checked but he said that he believes she has Sensory Processing Disorder! Now off to the specialists for $200 an hour for further diagnosis or treatment.
Does anyone have any experience in this? Has your child got it?
I have googled all the information on it but I would like to hear from someone who has dealt with it!
I just want a better understanding of the way it may affect her day to day.
