ADHD and Sensory Integration Disorder do often overlap; unfortunately, sometimes it is very difficult to determine whether it is the one or the other.
I assume you have provided your daughter's teacher with the reports from the OT as well as Bergit? From your post, I am not certain how long your daughter has been with her OT or when the diagnosis of SID was made; if it is within this year, I suggest giving her current treatment a chance (at least 6 months). If absolutely no improvement is evident, then a second opinion is in order. I am sure the teacher understands that these treatments take time before the benefits can be seen.
An educational psychologist would be the best professional to see for a comprehensive assessment - I do wonder why the teacher has suggested IQ and play therapy? Please contact the Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Support group of Southern Africa (ADHASA)at www.adhasa.co.za/ or (011) 888 7655 for a medical professional in your area who is well experienced with ADHD.
