First I want to thank anyone who reads this and tries to help us in our mission to get my son Korey more help for his Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Please when you share this use #TheDoctorsMeetKorey
As many of my readers know I have talked about Korey’s SPD for many years and the at home therapies he had and now his journey in preschool. Recently Korey was tested to see if he qualified for psychical therapy, which we already know he would benefit from, and he passed. While the therapist still recommended it he was denied by the school board, and there’s not really much I can do to fight it, except this. There are many things we need help with, I’ve kept a lot of it silent from my readers, between our roof starting to have a leak, our vehicle being totaled and the house still not finished being renovated however I believe that Korey’s troubles are the most important.
I am going on a huge campaign to try to get my 3-year-old son to see The Doctors, my favorite medical informative show to watch. This show has helped me learn how to cook better, given me health information I could pass to my mother and keep me laughing at the fun interaction between all of them. They are the only people I can think of that can help my family get in touch with a doctor that knows about Sensory Processing Disorder and an excellent team of therapists that can give us advice and guidance and draw awareness to a disorder that only few know about.
It makes me feel so helpless when I watch Korey not be able to sit still for more than 5 minutes. He needs sensory input so bad we can barely get through a book without him needing to get up and run around. Recently he has begged to go to see the new Spongebob Squarepants Sponge Out Of Water, and all I can tell him is I’m sorry buddy but we can’t. Why? There is no way for him to sit still and watch it in a movie theater without causing a ruckus, simply because his sensory system doesn’t understand the need for sitting still and he needs the extra pressure and movement for his body to understand the space that it is in. I don’t know if he will ever get to the point where he can watch a movie in a theater, something so simple that many families don’t realize is a struggle for others.
While I don’t have the money to afford extra therapists there is one thing that I do have the power of social media. Please help me in getting the attention of The Doctors and producers of the show to help my family, to help my son. As a mother I’m asking you to take the few seconds out of your time and share this with the hashtag #TheDoctorsMeetKorey you can tag them on Twitter and Facebook . I want my son to have all the tools he can to help go through life with this disorder and help us learn how to manage it.
