Re: suspecting SID in ds?

OT is a great idea. I worked with a number of kids who had SID, as well as a host of other issues, and the OT worked really well for most of them.

Good luck!

Re: suspecting SID in ds?

My Sara has SID too, she was diagnosed about a year ago and we are constantly in therapy. I know all too well about the wrestling to unwind but she also has alot of OCD type problems as well. We do have problems with food and things she will eat and the has to be on a schedule or she totally flips during the day. We have sleep issues with it too, don't know if it is related to the SID but night terrors are in big time mode for us.

Re: suspecting SID in ds?

oh we were having some night terrors here too. not any in a long time tho, but when she would get them. OMG just terrible terrible screaming, heart wrenching blood curdling screams.
one thing my mom reccomends for children, adults too, with ANY sensory issues is to do some "brushing" there are actually brushes designed for it, though i suppose you could use a regular brush. and you jsut brush the body. from the inner points out. alot of sensory problems are miswiring/misfiring in the brain so stimulating the body in safe ways, like brushing, wrestling, wrapping up in a towel, small blanket like a burrito, etc helps the brain to chill out and lets some of the other sensory issues slide for a while.

let us know if you start seeing an OT and if it helps your sons issues.

Re: suspecting SID in ds?

Alex has a sensory disorder where he needs excessive deep sensory activities integrated throughout the day (every hour to hour and a half). We got him evaluated through Early Intervention, and are starting OT Wednesday. He is getting 8 weekly sessions to start with to help us determine what works and what doesn't, and then together we will be putting together a "sensory diet." We give him opportunities to jump on pillows, and throw himself down, carry heavy things, wrestle, be tickled, etc, frequently and that drastically reduces his "breakdowns" or "bad sensory" days and moments. We also give him popsicles, sour, salty, crunchy, and sometimes spicy things to eat. The variety of strong flavors/ sensations seems to help a lot as well.

It's hard to deal with, but as long as you know the triggers for your own kid's problems, then it becomes a lot easier.
it does sound a lot like autism and related disorders....wonder if this is related to vaccines too

I didn't know that preemies were at a higher risk. Thanx so much for telling me. We are having one of out preemie (31 wks 6 days) triplets evaluated for autism/SID. It sounds like he fits right into the SID moreso than the Autism though. He is very sensitive to loud noises, crowds, etc. He loves to jump and bounce, he rubs or bangs his head or rocks himself back and forth to calm himself. When he has one of his breakdowns...it HURTS me...there is nothing I can do to help him and it just breaks my heart. Especially when I try to hold him and he just screams b/c he doesn't know what he wants.

i would have thought that, since ds had his first 6mth ones, but these behaviours were there as a newborn.
