I've posted here before, but it has been awhile. Quick re-intro: My daughter is 3 1/2 and has mild hypotonia and apraxia. She started private speech therapy at 2 and OT right before her third birthday. She's made amazing progress since her third birthday and we have actually been dismissed from private therapy. We still get 30 minutes of speech once a week through the school district though for lingering (age appropriate) articulation issues. I will be clinging to that IEP as hard as I can for as long as I can in case other issues crop up later. Which, they have.
Two and a half weeks ago she had a seizure. It was pretty terrifying and not an experience I'd like to repeat but since there is family history of epilepsy I'm also not overly surprised. We have an EEG and MRI scheduled for next month at which point we will hopefully get more answers. (With our luck, we will just get more questions..). So, now for my question. Since the seizure DD has just not been herself. She has started to have more tantrums and increased anxiety. Her tolerance for things that aren't her idea is pretty non existent. (Melt downs about going to school when she used to love it, meltdowns about not going to the park or something else she wants to do, etc.) So, she's three. I know three year olds can be tough but this behavior is out of character for her and I'm starting to become concerned. It started just before her seizure and hasn't let up. From what I have read behavior issues are very common post-seizure but I feel like at almost three weeks out that is no longer a valid reason. Anyone have any experience? Does this seem normal at this point? At what point should I worry the increased anxiety is something else?
