School is out for the Summer!
School has been out for a week now. I have been spending way more time with my kids especially my son, "R5". I have seen where he has improved in many ways but I am also seeing new Sensory Processing Disorder symptoms. He loathes hot food and almost prefers it cold. The water in the bathtub or shower has to be almost cold. Also, he has to have a beach towel on the back of his seat in the car if we are going to the pool and he just has on his swim trunks. Why? The seat is hot! These symptoms seem to be getting worse, not better. He does not like extreme cold either. He often tells me "Cold is hot!" Luckily, I understand that he has SPD and have the patience to deal with this. If it keeps up, we may have to have therapy for the aversion to temperature. Right now, he is in OT and PT for strength and writing as well as reading tutoring.
