I need to why he does/doesn't do things. What his diagnosis's really means in the real world. To bring all the technical mombo jumbo into normal explainations so that I can UNDERSTAND WHY!!!! things are the way they are........AND......how I can help my child....ME, not a therapist, not a doctor....but ME. Do the lights need to be soft, does he need a quiet dark room with big pillows, should I message him, not feed him carbs, Sorry I had to exit real fast, and then come back in, so I'll continue.) I need to find some great website, books, cd's, video, whatever so that "I" can teach myself becuase NO ONE is answering the question why??????????? Why does he spin? Why does he bounce from one couch to the next? Why does he spiral into major hyper when a person comes over? Why does he lay upside down to watch tv? Why does he HATE baths, but loves to play with the water hose outside and get soaking wet? Why does he love hot peppers even though they upset his GERD? Why does he purposely bang his knees, run into the wall, fall down, etc when he's totally hysterical and spiraling into the out of control touchiness that EVERYTHING hurts him, but it does it on purpose? What do I do to help him? What do I do to reduce sabotaging him just because I don't realize the lights are to bright and THAT is triggering a rage? I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHY..........SO I CAN HELP MY SON LIVE IN THIS WORLD AND NO ONE IS ANSWERING THE QUESTION. All I get is "we don't know", "we don't care or focus on the why but on the behavior", etc. Does anyone have any good books to read on all of his diagnosis's: Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified, ADHD, SEVERE SENSORY INTEGRATION DYSFUNCTION, SEVERY DYSLEXIA IN ALL TYPES, MOOD DISORDER-not otherwise specified, (I'm forgetting some, but they're in my signature). Thanks.
