So I posted previously asking about how young those with LO's who have sensory issues saw their problems and after really thinking about it--- I am 99.9% sure DS2 also has sensory issues. But in this case, I think they are far worse than DS1 (who I consider to be relatively bad)--so I'm kind of upset.
He literally can't sit still. I can't even read him a short 3-5 page baby story. However, ironically enough he will sit still for an activity book like those "touch and feel" books. He throws himself off of furniture and truly never gets hurt. It's like he "craves" it much like DS2. And very much UNLIKE DS1, he NEVER EVER watches tv. Ever. Not even for 5 minutes (and trust me, I've tried because sometimes mommy just needs a 10 minute break, right??)
I also have concerns about his speech, but since he's 19 months old there is a chance he can catch up still. I don't feel he has the apraxia that DS1 has --but there's certainly "SOMETHING" happening there---I'm just not sure what.
I just don't want to make that call and they say I have to wait until a certain timeframe. BUT I don't want to wait too long. For DS1 we didn't call until about he was over 2 yrs old (about 26 months old). And I regret waiting that long.
Also--- what were they looking for in their evaluation for occupational therapy/sensory issues? DS1 at that time of evaluation didn't show that he had sensory issues but did after the age of 3 when he got in to the elementary school program. I'm just afraid someone visiting the house for 20 minutes will miss it.
