Sensorty Intergration???

My 10 yr old daughter was diagnosed with extreme sensory intergration disorder... mostly involving tactile defensiveness. She says her fingers bother her.. they feel like they are too close together. same goes for her toes.. but it literally drives her crazy. She will have a tantrum about it until she is able to get her mind off it.. She also does this about other parts of her body such as her arm and cheek.. Says they don't feel right. any ideas about this???

Dear Tammy,

This sort of reaction in a young child can indeed be indicative of Sensory Integration Disorder. This diagnosis should be made by an occupational therapist, the discipline most qualified to diagnose and treat such a condition.
