Does anyone know what kind of doctor would diagnose sensory issues? I have an appointment to see my family practitioner on June 29th (I can't get in before then), but I simply won't make it. ds2 has huge issues that take up our evenings and mornings when it's time to get dressed. EVERY kind of clothing "bothers" him. We spend at least 15 minutes every night trying on clothes to see what's not going to bother him to save time the next morning, but we do it all over again in the morning because he changes his mind and it all bothers him again. The tags bother him, denim material now bothers him (won't wear jeans), the feeling of socks bothers him, underwear - even if it's "tagless" - it bothers him, how tight his shoes are tied bother him, he won't wear "shirts with buttons", etc.. I'm trying to be very patient and helpful in finding the "right" things to wear, but I'm starting to go crazy here and there's no way I'll make it to June 29th. I keep calling to see if they have cancellations, but none.
Anyway - would I proceed to a neurologist? dermatologist? Seriously, I have googled and can't find who diagnosis this kind of stuff. I see that therapy (pt/ot?) would probably work with him, but surely I'll need a diagnosis before my insurance would pay.
