"Our son Antonio was always on the go, had difficulty with transitioning from one activity to another, and was becoming more physical when frustrated. We brought this up to our pediatrician and the reply was "it's normal for a boy his age." I was worried that he would have issues when he starts kindergarten so we pressed for an OT evaluation. That was the best decision we made. My son was identified as sensory seeking and had aversions as well. He started therapy during the summer with Miss Heather and he is doing very well in school and at home."
