Hi~ I am new to this group and looking for any help I can. My 6 yr old daughter is addopted (we've had her since 18 mo) she has been diganosed with sensory perception disorder, reactive atachment,  disruptive behavior disorder.  Suspected FASD and Aspbergers .She is still going through more testing and just finished IQ and intensive psychological testing. She has manic episodes and hurts herself ie: sctratches till she bleeds, pulls out  teeth that are NOT loose, cuts herself with scissors and bangs her head. Yesterday she was sent home AGAIN and told not to return till she's stable. Her 'team' of providers are reccomending mood stabilizers so that we may get  her into an outpatient intensive treatment. Our other option is inpatient hospitaliation :( PLEASE do any of you have suggestions, what meds have been sucsessful for you. Any body gone the inpatient route. Side note, she is above average intellegence and I have 5 other kids ages 18-27 so I am familiar with different parenting styles...I'm not new to parenting, just new to this kind of challange. Thanks so much!!

     Your son sounds like mine. The hiding, sun,lights and sound, crashing. We are doing much better since being in OT too. We don't have texture issues thank goodness

    Quoting ZakkarysMom:

    He eats inedible things..paper, leaves.. Stuffs food in his mouth and holds it in there. He is sensitive to light and sound..busy places like Walmart overwhelm him. He goes and hides or runs off. He is very loud to drown out other noises. Screams if sun is in his eyes. He has to touch everything. He crashes into people and things.

    Quoting aponder:



    Quoting ZakkarysMom:

    My son has sensory processing disorder. But his behaviors are not like that..


     Can I ask what sort of symptoms or problems is involved with that?
