This is Aidan two one years old look at his sausage fingers ;)!
A while back I wrote about my sons new found diagnosis called Sensory Processing Disorder. When I found out about it I decided to read and research everything about this disorder. We have the boys in Occupational Therapy once a week and are currently making a sensory room for Aidan where he is allowed to run and release his energy in a safe way. Its been a hard journey for us but enlightening to see the light at the end of the tunnel that these boys will be okay after all! Out of boys I would say that Aidan's sensory issues is ten fold more difficult to handle than Josiah's. Aidan has down right rage and melts down for things that I can not calm him down easily. There is no way to explain the way the house shakes when he is in rage! He is also always falling down and making unsafe choices, he bumps into things tons and breaks things around the house not on purpose but because he has no awareness of his body. Aidan is sensory seeking so touch is something he craves also falling down and bumping feels good to him. Yesterday I had a conference with five of the professionals on his IEP (individualized Education Plan) for the special Ed preschool program he is in now. 5 people discussing my sons disabilities. Aidan is below average on speech, Fine Motor, Gross Motor but not enough to qualify him for any special needs programs. Although he qualifies in social he has issues with his peers. There was more things said at the meeting that Frank and I are keeping in the tight box, but it left me with a huge uneasy feeling, I don't have a peace with him at this school for right now. Friends suggested that I go in and ''observe'' the class room and write down some thing I think the teachers may need help with or any tips, I plan to do this. Although I just feel that he is still misunderstood that the things he is doing at school have to do with his sensory more than him being disobedient or looking for attention. I can see why so many moms school their special needs children at home, a mom understands her child better than anyone else. I feel like mind has been misunderstood :( I understand they are the professionals and they know for the most part what their talking about but I really didn't feel like they knew alot of this disorder which made me a little surprised. I know my son is not the first and not the last who will enter they doors with this, however if he is not liking to go to school even one bit, I can imagine its because he does not feel successful in what he is doing, and I hate that he feels this way! Tomorrows observation will be my deciding factor for letting him stay home with mom till kindergarten. After my big talk I asked Frank to get a sitter and take me to get some wine, I am a light weight so I drink half a glass and I am a goner, I had a whole glass last night ;) Pray for my precious little lamb, he is no mistake God placed him in my womb for good purpose He is so funny, and adorable, and smart, and wonderfully made. Pray that I remember that in the times of this boys loss of control to which I feel like I have lost it to, but I cant at this time. For him I cant!
