I am certified in teaching---Your child Needs intervention to get off to a good start in school. I have a child with the same ...It is NOT easy ! I would do OT another day a week. I have sensory...I have to
Follow a sensory diet every day of my life !
A child with ADHD and sensory needs intervention!!! I am so glad u got him tested. Now you need to get teachers with proper training in place.
Read the books The Out of Sync Child and The Spirited Child.
Make sure your child gets enough sleep, avoid food chemicals, and the teacher knows all about ADHD. Public school is probably best.
Your child is probably very sensitive and has to have a 504 plan or an IEP.
Did the dr you worked with give you advice in the report?
Maybe take him out of Montessori and have him work with educators who are trained. Please do not wait it out. I have been down this path and you are your child's advocate. My child did OT, was tutored with an educator who KNEW what sensory was and my child was allowed to chew gum in the class for the sensory. My child also did vision therapy----when sight was 20/20. Your child will need assistance ---especially K and first grade!
Based on the diagnosis this is NOT your child being stubborn or in a phase.
ADHD and sensory overlap. I can tell you that I have sensory and their are days when my central nervous system and my brain are jammed. I do My own OT every day. It was so much harder to get through the days when I was a kid because OT was not suggested for me.
Only one of my kids has sensory and I did all that I could....Let me know if you have any more questions.
