A girl on my fb just posted that she thought that her ds may have sensory processing disorder because he hates having his hands dirty. Wtf?!?

He's almost 2. O.o

It is so annoying to me to see people say that their kids have spd, ofh, oddes, hhhdj, hent etc. (made up abbreviations)

Why can't people just realize that everything doesn't have to be a disorder.

Now I know that some kids truely do have disorders, but I feel like they are WAAAAY over diagnosed.

my kid picks his nose, I think he has something. *eyeroll*

Absolutely!!!

Although, I think DS may have ADHD bc he just won't sit the fuck down, shut up or even walk properly for 5 mins.

I really don't think he does have it but the rest is true.

Over diagnosis actually only counts for around 2%.
People do self diagnose though.

agree. i think that every day here... adhd is not fucking special needs. meet a child who is unable to complete any basic human necessities and tell me how hard your day was.

 I have seven without disorders so I agree that not everyone has one.

Yep. Quite a few people who claim to have XYZ haven't had it confirmed by a doctor. They simply had one or two symptoms and ran with it.

My kid walks on her toes because she doesn't like the feel of the floor on her feet.  I call it a quirk, not a disorder.
