Parenting Challenges or Neurological Disorder_Question
Posted on Monday, September 14th, 2015 at 3:30 am.
Dr. Beth, I am the mother of a 7 year old daughter and I am really worried about her. In most respects she seems like a pretty normal kid, but she has had some unusual behaviors and reactions to her surroundings. She can’t stand the feeling of certain clothing fabrics against her skin, normal noises seem to really agitate her, and she is super-picky about what she eats, often saying that the texture of certain foods are “icky” and “gross”. My husband and I have tended to see her as just being a picky and somewhat dramatic child. Now that she has started school, however, these reactions seem to be getting worse. Her teachers are concerned and so am I. How do I find out what is going on with her?
