I have 3 year old twins, one of which has SPD and anxiety. She's been in OT for well over a year and saw a social worker and psychologist for awhile (but stopped since she seemed to be doing much better).
My daughter with SPD and anxiety seems to melt down a lot more than my other daughter and she often has issues with changing her mind. Not sure if it has to do with her issues or if this is just common in her age. She has anxiety anytime I drop her off in a class. Today I took the girls to a gymnastics class. One of them was running and tripped and fell. I took her out of the class for a second because she was crying for me. My other daughter (with SPD/anxiety) started crying because her sister was gone. But even after I brought her back, she continued crying and the teacher had me take her out of the room because she was screaming and other kids couldn't hear the teachers talking. She basically went into meltdown mode for the next 45 minutes. I took her out and she was screaming/crying that she wanted to go back into class. So I'd walk her back to the door and she'd scream/cry that she didn't want to go in. She went back and forth with this a few times. I finally told her she wasn't going in and had to keep taking her outside because I felt bad for the other moms having to listen to her melt down.
Her mind changing happens on a regular basis. Every morning I'll give her a choice of 2 things for breakfast, she'll pick one, then cry as soon as she sits down that she doesn't have the other thing. I'm so frustrated and don't know how to handle this anymore. This morning I just ignored her as she cried about not having pancakes and she eventually got over it.
Just thought I'd see if anyone else experiences this with their child and if you've found anything that helps the situation. Thanks!
