what should i say to my pead, re giftedness and SPD

hi there , i came across this site and i am so relieved . talking to other parents who are not going through the same thing is hard as i feel no one understands . I have a daughter who will be 3 in august (2.8yrs) and we suspect she is gifted with a sensory processing disorder . from reading the info i have been given it seems she is on the side of sensory seeking . and her gifted traits definatley lies in her language as she has a better vocab than my 4yr old . question is what to i say to my pead to test her for these ? ( SPD and gifted ness ) i dont want to go in there and be sent away looking foolish . or i dont want anything to be missed . she is a very complex child with her health etc so i want to be sure im doing the right thing by talk to a pead . but im struggling to find the right words to bring it up iykwim? please help :) thanks

Hi Gabnix,
not sure if you still check the sight, but I feel my 3 and a half year old son fits this same bill. the daycare already had me seek out my paediatrician for apparent ADHD. confirmed last month that he didn't have it!
but now trying for some other diagnosis!!!!! possible SPD?
good luck
