Description

Understanding Regulation Disorders of Sensory Processing in Children: Management Strategies for Parents and Professionals

Children with regulation disorders are frequently misdiagnosed as ‘fussy’ or ‘colicky’ or, worse, the parents are blamed for the child’s unusual responses to sensory input.

The authors describe the everyday experiences of those with frequent or intermittent contact with regulation disorders of sensory processing in children. 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 parent and professionals will help children with regulation disorders integrate and succeed in the family, at school and in the community.

This informative, concise book will be of interest to those who assess, educate and parent children with regulation disorders.
