Not easy to have the sort of energy that you get with ADD when you can't move to burn it off. I suppose it would explain your DD's screaming days? Doesn't make it any easier for you, though.

I take it she hasn't reached the point yet where she can tell you how she is feeling via the communicator?

Ds does the traffic light thing too and has no patience when you stop to talk to someone in the street, i always just assumed it was a sensory thing, liking to be kept moving,

he certainly has great concentration skills otherwise as he's quite happy to sit watching a dvd and will quite happily sit for 3 hours on a sunday watching the Formula One!

no-ones mentioned the ADD/ADHD/ASD thing to us yet but i suppose its a possibility given the noise related sensory issues, tannoy systems in shops, people cheering or singing happy birthday etc altho he is getting a lot better with that.

DD has sensory issues as well as concentration & attention, hyperactive, etc. She can't cope with the traffic lights business either.

I'm a bit shock that they tell you something like that but don't really offer anything in the way of help.

Both DS1 and DS2 go nuts if the car or buggy stops. DS2 is only 3.5 months. I was wondering if that was a sign of sensory issues to come. DS1 also does when the car is in reverse.

ooooh ds hates the car reversing too!
screams like a banshee as soon as i put it in reverse, even if i warn him beforehand and stops as soon as the car stops!
there must be some sort of sensory connection here?
