My son is almost 3. He has a mild speech delay and behavioral/aggression issues. His therapist thinks he has a sensory processing disorder. What are your experiences? What helped best with the tantrums? Does your child self injure? Mine does. What helps reduce those behaviors? Currently my son is in birth to three where he recieves speech and social skills therapies. He sees a therapist at the local mental health center monthly....he's getting evaluations and assessments and I meet with therapist for parenting consultation. He's currently being evaluated for IEP so he can continue to recieve services when he outgrows birth to three (third birthday).
Oh and anybody else know how frustrating and insensitive people can be? They look at me like he's "spoiled" and I'm a bad parent when he's having a fit. People make comments like they don't get how I can be a mental health proffessional myself and my son is how he is. I'm a children's case manager for 4-19 year olds at the local community mental health center. I'm going to graduate school to be a therapist.
