I am SO stressed and exhausted by V and his issues. The kid is non stop and never allows anyone to just breath. All those strategies and therapies that don't work. Everyone has changed except V!!! What's the point??? He sucks my energy to the point I'm totally drained. I've decided to go back to full school days. Between all 3 kids, somedays I have to make 4 round trips to drop them off and pick them up. That is just TOO much. To that, you add therapies and I'm ready to explode. We have worked so hard in trying to understand and accomodate, but I have to come to the realization that V is the same old V he's always been... The school seems to think everything is just fine, then why not go for a full day and give myself a break? Somehow, things have to get better. I don't think I can last for years if things don't change. I wish there were someone out there who could help our family, but instead I'm stuck with the Occupational Therapist (OT) who finally saw that V is just being oppositional and not scared at all. Just playing her big time. And then, let's not even mention idiot behavioral therapist who treats wrong kiddo. And to top it all: V looks so normal and cute! Who would believe how hard it is to raise him?? I really think sensory processing disorder (SPD) is the wrong diagnosis. Here is a list of the issues I see: -do things on his own terms only (he will not change his mind EVER!) -problem expressing thoughts, pulling out in informations stored in his brain -issues processing verbal information - gets frustrated wen forgets words/name/thoughts - repeats same thoughts and questions over and over (he will no stop despite how many times I listen or answer) - gets stuck on things/events and CANNOT get passed it. Do any of those signs ring a bell to you? Any advise?
