We aren't sure if SPD is in fact the cause of her speech delays (or any of her delays for that matter) or if there is something else coming down the line for us. She will be evaluated in May/June by Regional Center to rule out PDD-Pervasive Developmental Disorder and any ASD's-Autism Spectrum Disorders.
The great thing is she is responding so well to her therapists (well all except her pediatric Speech/Language Pathologist who I am not sure knows that pediatric = kids because she seems to have no love or joy in her heart for children!-we are getting a new one!) and making daily progress. I get teary eyed seeing her do the little things that we may have otherwise taken for granted. She colored with crayons for the first time 3 weeks ago. I cried and clapped and laughed all at the same time. She kicked a ball this past week, I got misty. She fights us but she takes her shoes and socks off now and tries to get her pants down on her own. She certainly determined and confident (got that from my mom for sure) and we are so hopeful that one day in the near future we will look back and say "boy you caused us lots of gray hairs when you were little-but look at you now!" Im pretty certain though, that no matter what the future holds for her, we will be saying that anyway!
