Who requires Self Regulation Support?
Is your child is having “melt-down” moments? Perhaps they have difficulty dealing with anger? Demonstrates explosive behaviour? Or your child generally has difficulty when things don’t go their way.
Self-regulation is a person’s ability to adjust and control their reactions, energy level, emotions, behaviours and attention. It is the ability to “keep an even keel”. When a child struggles with self-regulation they often demonstrate behaviours that are viewed by others as “poor behaviour“. Self regulation is strongly influenced by our sensory processing as well as other things, including cognitive and language function.
