Help in Vancouver
I tend to agree that SID doesn't exist on it's own. I have severe sensory issues, but I come by them honestly, being both autistic and having TS!
But, as kWhitlock said, she was diagnosed with TS as a child, and therefore it is quite likely that she also has the sensory integration issues.
Steve, DAN stands for 'Defeat Autism Now', an organization intent on wiping out autism (and all autistics?). Most autistic people are highly suspicious of this organization, as they consist entirely of non-autistic people. They refuse to listen to any autistic adults, since in their opinion, if you are able to communicate and are intelligent you aren't autistic, and therefore what you say is irrelevant. Their 'autism community' doesn't include autistic people, but are parents and caregivers of autistic children. And they claim to know more about what these children think and feel than autistic adults (who obviously used to be autistic children).
So, kwhitlock, I'd stay away from a DAN doctor. Just my honest opinion (which is obviously coming from an autistic adult). If you do some research on the Internet you may come to a different conclusion. Personally, I never just take anybody's word on anything important, but do my own research as well.
