Im not a parent, but I do have Sensory Processing Disorder! Im not really sure about the IEP thing, I know it is part of my IEP but Im not from you area, and I also have other issues to acompany it (type 1 diabetes, SLD, ADHD) But I do know some things you can do to help him at home! Things like:-Warn him verbally before you touch him-Cut the tags from all his clothes-Allow him to be an exta picky eater, just make sure he gets his nutrition-Eliminate as much background noise as possible when concentration is required -When you buy him clothes, make sure they are comfy for him-Dont force him to use flanal sheets (or other types he may find iritating) if it is a warmth issue, add more blankets on top, or take some off-Dont wear strong perfumes or use strong odor sprays in your home-Let him choose the lightbubls where possible (hell either prefer etraordinary bright bulbs, or very dim bulbs) or get dimmers ofr you lights-Most people dont think of this one, but buy grips ofr his pencils, just be prepared to try many different kinds before he fins one he likes (sylicone, pillow)-Do you best to buy sent free soaps and lotions-Get his attention before you talk to himAs far as the school meeting!!! educate yourself as much as possible beforehand! Educate yourslef on Sensory Processing Disorder by researching on the web, and get books from the library! Be prepared to have to teach the school all about what he may need! You may also have to show them some evidence, so bring his evaluation report! Id bring some books with you to, so that when your educating the school, they know that youre not just making up your info! Also, educate yourself on the special education law before hand! The school is going to think you know nothing, so proove them wrong, and know your rights! This site is good for that http://www!wrightslaw!com/ ! Basically, prepare a presentation on Sensory Processing Disorder to give them, and fight hard for your son! Dont give up, and dont loose heart!Good luck, sorry I couldnt help more!
