I've sought out assistance for my almost 3yr old for speech. She's behind her peers.
She'll be 3 in a couple of months and has just got to the 3 word phrase stage.
However; they keep saying they think she also has some "sensory issues" and they think an OT would help too.
I want her to get whatever help she needs; but I don't understand what this means; and they don't seem to be able to explain it to me.
When I hear sensory issues I think of children who have Autism. Children who can't handle bright lights or sounds; or wear certain fabrics; or eat 'smooshy' foods etc...
My DD has none of those issues. She is just hyperactive. She loves to be on the go go go. She has spent all her time mastering every physical skill possible rather than learn to speak. She has a stubborn streak like no one's business. She can be very obstinate.
Is anyone familiar with this type of situation?
