Sensory Integration Disorder

I have not blogged in a while and for you 3 people who read my blog, I apologize. I have been so busy with our trip to Alabama, then school starting that I am just now catching up on this.

We have started a new diet right now. I'm reading a book called NDD by Dr. Sears. I started that diet on Wednesday and I love it! It is almost organic, but not quite, and we can still eat a lot of our favorite foods. This has made a big difference on the kids moods (and mine:)) I recommend that book to everyone who has or is planning on having a child, it is awesome what you learn.

On to the title of this post, Sensory Integration Disorder, Anthony was just diagnosed yesterday with this. I'm still learning about it, and I'm not quite sure yet what this means for him and us, but I'm hoping to find other moms out there that are familiar with it. We will began therapy within the month two times a week. So we are up to five therapy sessions a week, each are one hour long. I'm ready to get that going and see what happens. Everything I find says that he could be diagnosed with ADHD or Autisium when he gets older, so I'm trying to get as much information now about those two as possible. If any of you know anyone who has this disorder or is aware of it, please ask them to get in touch with me. I need all the information I can get right now, such as support groups, books, tools, toys, etc.

If you have any questions or comments please leave them. I'll try to post pictures tonight or tomorrow of the kids first few days of school.
