On the autism spectrum?
It seems like every other mama on here has a child on the spectrum. Just curious.

No but I know several awesome kids on the spectrum. Including my brother who is almost 21 now but I remember when he was diagnosed in kindergarten.

We think my son has some kind of sensory issue. What made you realize your son has SPD?

I actually thought his "tics" we're normal toddler behavior
At his 2 year appt we filled out an autism evaluation sheet and his pedi referred him to an occupational therapist.
He's noise sensitive,has severe meltdowns,he repeats actions until he's satisfied with the outcome(perfectionist) he has pretty bad sleep issues
He's also speech delayed due to speech apraxia

I was talking to someone and she said that it is kind of rare for someone to not fall somewhere on the spectrum at all.
