suspecting SID in ds?

As hes got older and the more i read, the more the peices seem to fit. We are going to talk to my county visiting nurse when she comes next time about getting some help and maybe trying OT. Also in reading, I noticed it fits alot of my "quirks", but obviously, I'm to old for therapy lol so I'll just use some techniques on myself to help.

Do you have any other adivice or BTDT experience?

Re: suspecting SID in ds?

My brother has it. My mom had him go into testing oh... 4 years ago? He's 9.5 now. He always had "weird" issues as a kid. If we tried to get him to eat a banana, he'd puke. Same with a lot of other foods. He can't wear anything other than cotton almost. Wool sweaters literally drive him crazy, he totally flips out.

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.

thanks yeah, we know most of his triggers, new ones are popping up as he ages though. I think our parenting style helped alot with dealing with his triggers.

Re: suspecting SID in ds?

Addy has some mild sensory issues, not SID, but i notice that if she is acting out i can use some sensory tools to help her center herself. some good ones for us are rice/beans in a container for her to play in, like sand. water play, squishy balls, balls that have "fingers" koosh balls.
sometimes she NEEDS to wrestle with DH.i cant do it with her, so after a long hard day for her and i DH comes home from work and wrestles with her and it helps her release. she needs that tight physicalness.
i notice that when she gets almost overstimulated on her good sensory items, then she is less sensitive to the bad sensory items.
what are your issues right now?

Re: suspecting SID in ds?

Sara has sensory issues too. For a long time it was food things, still a little sometimes. She has trouble with wet or squishy things. Loud noises freak her right out and spark a 10 minute tantrum. Clothing sometimes does it to her so she needs to have only the softest wool covers or pants or shorts and Hanna playdresses. Anything tight on her belly and she has a tantrum. A previous poster talked about wrestling with dh. We do that too. It doesn't work with me. Only him. He's really rough on her and outsiders think he's hurting her but she's hysterically laughing the entire time. She loves being wrestled with and it helps her "decompress." I don't know if it's SID per se, but it's definitely problems with sensory things.

By the way, her pedi thinks it's as a result of her prematurity. She had a nervous system that was too immature to be bombarded by the stress, noise, lights, and feel and smell of the nicu. Preemies are at a VERY high risk for SID.
