I'm a mom of a unique 3 1/2 year old. I know every parent feels their child is unique and rightly so, that's what a parents love is all about.
I have two older children, 19 & 14 plus I ran an in-home daycare for 8 years so I have a pretty good idea of what is 'typical' for children at certain development stages.
My son, Remy was diagnosed with Sensory Integration Disorder at age two. Symptoms started at 4 months of over reactions to his senses and then 'night terrors' (so his doc said) at 9 months but as he started talking we learned that he was fully awake these were not night terrors. Especially when the fears happened during the day and daily, he was 'seeing' and talking to people and kids that we couldn't see.
He has extreme reactions and intollerances to sounds and changes and crazy tantrums in which he is so very physically distraught there is no way anyone can tell me he is spoiled and manipulating me, esp. since this has been going on since day 2 of his life in the hospital.
I was told by a doc last week that he thinks my son has Asperger's Syndrome, but when I look up the check list a lot doesn't fit.
I have just begun to look at the Indigo Children possibility, but really don't know what to think. Then I hear about Crystal Children being ages 0 to 7. I'm confused. My child doesn't have huge eyes, like I've heard is a characteristic of the Crystal Children. Could he be an Indigo child at age 3 1/2, could he be a Crystal child without the 'large eyes'?
Could he just be a psychic child who is stressed over 'feeling too much'? He also has the hyperactivity that is talked about with the Indigo children, so much so that people that come over to our home have to leave in a short amount of time because he exhausts them.
answers please, I'm running out of options as far as preschool goes with his behaviors, need to know the best ways to help my beautiful child.
Thanks for listening to a very concerned mom.
