Hi everyone!

I don't have an official diagnosis of SPD, but I have a lifetime of symptoms, childhood and beyond, and probably like a lot of parents started connecting the dots when sensory issues were discovered with our kids. I finally have decent insurance but I'm undecided on whether or not starting the process of being diagnosed will be ultimately useful. At this point I feel more comfortable talking about my symptoms on here with you lovely people. Thanks!

RE: Hi everyone!

Welcome to the forum Paprika!

Just an FYI about insurance if you ever feel it's right for you to pursue an official diagnosis and treatment for SPD. SPD isn't yet recognized as an "official" disorder, at least not by insurance companies. When I did occupational therapy under just a diagnosis of SPD (I know have a diagnosis of autism which changed things) my OT had to list the daily skills I couldn't accomplish because of my symptoms and the insurance gave a limited number of visits to accomplish those specific things. (Then when I got an autism diagnosis, insurance paid for more visits). But of course every insurance is different. That's just my experience.
