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.

Hello both of my sons have sensory processing disorder.
Ds#1 is sensory seeking with movement, and oral
And has aversions with sight and sound.
Ds#1 is sensory seeking oral (big time) and aversion to touch, his vestibular senses are completwly off.
They both have low muscle tone (which they get from me)
Do u see regular OT or did u just go for the assessment? We do fortnightly therapy with the boys, and alot of stuff at home, my freshly turned three year old is harder to do stuff with because he gets distracted quite easily (both of the boys have autism as well) and he doesnt like to sit still very often.
However our OT does try to cater activities around this.
We do theraputic brushing on ds#1 (we cant do it on ds#2 because he is so so sensative to touch) but it does help ds#1 calm down a lot. Perhaps this is something u could google and bring up with your OT.
After two weeks of intensive brushing therapy my little boy when from bouncing on his toes quite violently as he walked (to help calm himself) to a soft bounce that no pne would notice.
Im rambling eep.

Yes we see our Ot on a regular basis was every 2 months but just got bumped up to every 3 months because she was happy with ds's progress.
But we have other Doctor and specialists app in between.
Our OT is fantastic she has suggested activities to try with ds.
We will be going to early intervention when we get in the referral has been sent but just the waiting game now.
And we can call our OT anytime and Nurse's and Doctors if we have any questions etc.
and that's fine you can ramble all night if you want lol that's why i asked the question because i wanted to know other parents with children like my ds.
Thank you for your fast response .

DS2 has all kinds of different SPD (possibly auditory processing disorder as well), he has the one where he likes the feel of hard touch, so he jumps of furniture and bangs and crashes all the time, and he also has the one where he hates light touch and textures, so he won't wear warm jackets, no, hoods, beanies, shoes and socks, hates being touched on the head of face, severe food aversions, hates touching sand, dirt, paint. Likes to chew on things that aren't food, chairs etc. At the moment he sees an OT once a week, sorry - I don't have any tips yet as we have only just started this process with him. He was just diagnosed with PDD-NOS as well. So all a bit overwhelming.

We just started seeing a OT fortnightly.
Could I ask how did you fix the sensory of hard feeling? My little is the same. He likes the hard feeling so bangs furniture and walls and floors all day. Also likes the vibration feeling of banging his head.
He grinds his teethes a lot also.
would be great if you could help me out with some ideas and tricks and what sort of questions should I bring up with my OT?
thank you in advance
