LO (4 years old) has his well child checkup Wednesday and his speech therapist has strongly urged me to request an OT evaluation for SPD. I see sensory stuff, definitely has had some oral seeking and aversion going on, he's very aware of smells and noises, and he's a crasher and basher. As long as he plays hard he does okay with that. He's come a long way. I do give him lots of sensory play and I push him out of his comfort zone.
So what are the benefits of getting an eval and having OT? I hesitate to add yet another DX. He's homeschooled so he won't need to conform to a classroom.
