Hello...I am very new here and new to my son's diagnosis. He is a loving little boy with TONS of talent and strengths. But, from the day we adopted him, I knew something was not quite right. Now we know what. He has SPD and we are overwhelmed by the range of ways this is playing out in his life. He is fine at home, generally. We have experienced some defiant behaviours but essentially, as the only child in a quiet home, he has few sensory inputs to upset him. In the school setting, with so many inputs, he is really struggling and we are hoping his work with OT will help. Any advice on how to handle the school environment? He is currently being pulled from class for instruction vs being in the classroom due to his outbursts. We are devastated for him but he does seem to be doing better with this arrangement. He is well liked by his peers and plays without incident with them on the street on weekends. During the week, we have a hard time getting him to put on socks, pants feel too tight or winter coats are too bulky. On weekends, he will willingly put on anything. Does anyone else have similar experiences?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
