My son is almost 3, he has not been officially diagnosed yet. He bounces in crib all the time, he's already destroyed a mattress and 2 crib springs. Has anyone else gone thru this before? Idk what to do. I've been trying to look up toddler beds and anything else that could help. Any advise?
My 2.5 yr old daughter has Sensory Processing Disorder and has a very difficult time with long sleeves. I really want to get her outside still, but with the cold weather and her hate for coats, its nearly impossible. Every time I even mention a coat she has a total meltdown. When I eventually get it on her; she shuts down/freezes, covers her eyes/ears and just lays on the floor, or me, in silence. It’s like she gets completely overwhelmed just from the feeling of sleeves on her arms. Its making… read more
My son only eats crackers and drinks chocolate milk while at school.
At home, only McDonald's chicken nuggets, some times the fries if he is really hungry. Fish sticks are usually, along with crackers, chips, and drinks like sunny D, white, and soda pop, but being careful with that.
Refusing anything else. All medications have to be in juice.

Our child's transition-related goals were not even a little bit met by the end of 12th grade. We rejected her diploma. She is still in public school and enrolled in a life skills program. I wonder if anyone has had a positive experience in a public "18-21" program. My experience has been that my child colors and uses her phone for a large part of every day.
Even before diagnosis we noticed some behaviors that became increasingly uncommon for a child his age as he grew. As I noticed issues (loud sounds, poor eye contact, difficulty adjusting to changes in routine, repetitive movements, struggle with recognizing social cues/emotions) I would figure out ways to help him navigate whatever he was struggling with. I would warn him when I knew a loud sound was coming, tell him repeatedly about any upcoming change in schedule, etc. He's very smart, but if… read more
