For the last few months Hunter and I have been acutely aware that "something" is not right with our Little man L. On Tuesday the "something" got a name when we got the report from the Occupational Therapist that evaluated him - SID - Sensory Integration Disorder. It was almost an "a-ha" moment when she started to explain how it works and the typical symptoms. We are lucky that with some of the issues he has already started to integrate himself.
Having a tag to hang around the issue is really a catch 22 - not wanting to label your child on the one hand, but also having the knowledge to deal positively with your child's problems on the other hand by having a label to Google, by obtaining books and gathering information.I have always dealt best with situations where I can arm myself with knowledge. After a long discussion with the therapist, I feel extremely positive that we will move forward and will get the best treatment possible for our child. In fact, some of the simple directions she has given us have already improved the situation at home, making him a much happier child and giving the rest of the family a break - the last two months have really been tough for us.I am not expecting miracles, but am hoping for small wonders. He starts with therapy in a week from today. His school has welcomed the diagnosis and the information and has promised to work hand in hand on this road with us.
So anybody knows any blogs of kids with SID or have kids with SID?
