    My son is 8 next month. We saw an OT on Tuesday that I organised myself as I knew there was something there by didn't know what.she said definitely sensory processing disorder since birth pretty much.

    We've seen a psychologist too who said it's purely behaviour. He's not an angel by any means but he's not a naughty kid. His school teacher this year is the best so far and recognises his intelligence and what gets him ticking etc.
    What I struggle with is when we have people over, even his same age cousins and he just does not cope at all. He turns into a complete obnoxious psycho pretty much and gets aggressive. I often have to separate him from them. It ends in him saying everyone hates him etc. we also hear "and no one cares if I even die". Is that all part of it??

    You need to find his triggers.
    On your report from the other it will tell you where he sits on each sensory category for want of a better term. Whether he is seeking or avoidance.
    Thing that are avoidance you will find triggers them more.
    Did they give a report about incorporating his sensory needs as well as dx report?

    She will write it all up before next visit. This visit was 2 hours and she asked all questions about him which was how she came to the conclusion.
    I know his trigger is people in his space. I used to do family day care from when he was 2 and he never coped at all so I ended up quitting.

    As for having people over. He might benefit from a quiet/chillout area. A play tent with cushions are usually a good easy way to do one. With earphones to help cancel out noise.
    It would mean making sure the visitors don't go near his quiet/chill out space.

    You will find once you get the report they will be lots of things can do or buy that will help. Nothing will fix it but there are things that will help.

    I think they can see.
    Some of the aspergers pages have great I go too.

    Aspergers and spd are linked but you don't have to have aspergers to have spd.

    Ds2 has adhd and spd.
