It was 76 in my house today and my 5 year old was complaining he was cold so much I had him put on a sweatshirt. Ever since he had surgery last march he is extremely sensitive to the cold.
I just find it really odd that none of his temperature problems started until then. Before that he could tell me when he was hot but now he will get heat exhaustion without even realizing he is hot at all!
Is it just coincidence? He does have spd.

He goes to a charter homeschool. They already have full evaluations set up for him. Speech, ot, academic, congitive, etc. It took a 5 minute meeting to get that agreed upon. They actually are doing more than I requested because they want to make sure they aren't missing anything. So the cognitive and academic are to make sure the level he is at is matching up with the level he is performing at (which is mid first grade). He has a great school :)


Quoting e-doolittle:

It could be related to the SPD. The surgery was a shock to his system and may take time to get regulated. My DS has SPD and he screamed and cried yesterday because it was the first cold day out.



Good luck getting him help with an OT. Be aware most school districts won't treat the SPD but other delays that may be because of the SPD. They can also make accomodations in the classroom but usually need outside direction as to what he might specifically need.



My DS gets help from the school and we have a private OT for the SPD.
