My DS is profoundly gifted and with the SPD, he has a lot of social difficulties.
My DS is also gifted and has SPD. Just recently we had a neuropsy. eval done and they said he has ADHD. Everyone who knows my son is surprised by this. We did the eval because we were looking at Asperger's. Anyways, my fear is that it is actually the SPD mimicing ADHD. I have read how this can happen and then throw giftedness on top and it all gets so confusing.
DS has been in OT for over a year now. He is a sensory seeker. He bounces a lot, walks on his toes, and has meltdowns when he is over stimulated. It is hard to deal with family. My DH had read nothing about it until we sat at the hospital for 2 days of the eval. Once he began to read, he began to see our son. But he has far less patience for our son. Sometimes I think they are too much alike.
It will be nice to have a place to talk here on SCS.
Thanks for starting this thread.
