Children with Regulation Disorders of Sensory Processing struggle to regulate their emotions and behaviours in response to sensory stimulation. This book explains how to recognize these disorders, which are often misdiagnosed, and offers practical ways of helping children with regulation disorders. The authors describe the everyday experiences of those who interact with infants and children with Regulation Disorders of Sensory Processing. They explain the distinguishing characteristics, symptoms, diagnosis, assessment and treatment approaches for the disorder. Focusing on early intervention, they present a range of management strategies for sensory sensitivities, motor problems, over- or under-reaction, and extremes of behaviour. These practical strategies for parents and professionals will help children with regulation disorders integrate and succeed in the family, at school and in the community.
