    Default So ... saw pediatrician today...

    And she said that there is nothing that she could label DS with. That maybe he might have ODD but that he is really too little to tell at this stage. She said that the school need to get better beh plan if they can't control him. (I'm sure that little pearl will go over really well when they find out as they have expressed that it is obviously our problem). I dont know how I really feel about it all. There is so much drama from the school and he is hard every day to deal with at home but she said it is more a state of mind than an actual concern. So where do we go from here? I am relieved but I feel like people need a label to be tolerant rather then just considering him a naughty boy.

    Have you tried changing schools?

    If he has a diagnosable issue it will be the same at another school... maybe the school he's at just doesn't work for him.. clash of personalities and stuff.

    As a teacher... I highly recommend spending the money and taking him to a private occupational therapist!!! You may find that he is in sensory overload or desperately seeking sensory input, both are super easy to work with and it could make the WORLD of difference at home- and if that is the case you then need to find an open and understanding teacher!

    We have thought about a OT but wasn't sure if that is what he needed. Can I ask what made you suggest an OT?

    Purely the amount of students I have had who have been labeled "behaviour or problems" when it is purely sensory and the poor little tykes are in constant flight, fright or freeze mode!! There isn't much behaviour options when everything is "hurting or scaring" you or your body is ready for a high adrenaline activity, yet the teacher expects them to sit still and silently read!

    Always remember that children don't just 'misbehave' for no reason... They are always trying to obtain or avoid something.

    I'm from toowoomba. If your son is in Prep and the school is a state school, he may be able to be assessed by a QLD education OT!!

    Yep you would think so but no. We have been trying for 2 years to get him referred but it still hasn't been done. That's why we have taken it into our own hands.
