Hi, just a lurker and just noticed this board. My son has sensory issues. Not sure how bad, but I am thinking it could be correctable. He is 19mths old and he is enrolled in first steps and has never really said a real word. I know that senory issues are new to some or most people dont know alot about them. But, I thought I would see if anyone else here has this issue with their children or as an adult?

Hi and welcome. my son was three when he started speaking. He was later walking to around 15months. He now goes to speech therapy and has come a long way. Look forward to meeting you.

my daughter (4) has sensory processing disorder. She was not delayed in her speech, or motor skills, but it has caused her a lot of trouble. She's had super severe tantrums since she was 18 months.

Have you read The Out of Sync Child? That book was very helpful to me, as well as Raising A Sensory Smart Kid. We had an ECI (early childhood intervention) therapist helping us until she turned 3. We'd been doing stuff on our own, but we went ahead and got an evaluation with an Occupational Therapist set up.

My son is also looking at SPD, he's had a lot of developmental issues in his short life, speech issues, behavioral issues, vision problems, his short 4 years have been full of ups and downs.

My son has SPD and has never spoken a word and he will be 4 in october. We have a lot of issues with him though with brushing his teeth, haircuts, shoes, and lots more...so his SPD isn't serve but I guess is moderate. He has learning issues as well since he can't focus very long on one thing. It is a long road but with a good OT it should be okay! I also love The Out-of-Sync Child book! Very helpful because it tells you what a normal kid would think and do compared to a child with SI.

Our son also have Sensory Issues & speech delay. he is attending ECS 5 days a week for children with these issues. The more and more I research on SID it worries me, and I feel sad. Is it really that bad for them? I know my son loves water, and is very touchy with people and things, but I had no idea it was so hard on them mentally. Anyone have any success stories? advice?
