My 4-year-old was diagnosed about 5 months ago. I'm still not sure who needs to know about his disorder and who doesn't. He is in preschool right now and will be next year too. I'm hoping that after he has had 2 years of OT, he will no longer need therapy or any special treatment from teachers. Ideally, I would like for him to start Kindergarten without anyone expecting to have problems from him (and without them knowing that he ever had problems). Are any of your kids still in therapy after 2 years? If so, is SPD their only diagnosis? I'm just concerned that if his teacher is expecting to have problems from him that it will become a self-fulfilled prophecy. Has this happpened to any of you? My son tends to get aggresive when he is overwhelmed by sensory problems. I hope he is able to get away from that reputation once he is no longer doing it. Any advice?
