    Sid

    My daughter has sensory integration dysfunction. She is not autistic, so I don't know if she would qualify for the special assistance card. I was wondering if any of you could give me some tips about going to disney with a SID child.

    Thanks

    Okay Madhatter, we are all moved in now... what types of questions do you have? What type of SID does your child have?

    Any info will do. My daughter is sensitive to sound, touch and has major feeding issues. She loves carousel rides, but on the other hand I could see ourselves waiting for an hour to ride dumbo and then she refuses to ride it. It is all a guessing game for us. Sound familar?
