Behavioral Regulation and Emotions: Essential Sensory Processing Supports

Course Number
OLOnDemandBehavioralReg&Emotionsv2-1.5hrWVBTT
Overview
This presentation will focus on how children who have difficulty processing ordinary sensory experiences may wear themselves out dealing with life and its sensory challenges, and lack the resources needed for behavioral regulation.  For example, a child who is over-responsive to some types of sensory input may have more difficulty filtering out repeated or irrelevant sensory information.  These children are easily overwhelmed by daily sensory experiences and display fight, flight, or freeze defensive responses.  This can result in frequent meltdowns, withdrawal from others, or severe aggression after being touched. Common patterns of sensory processing impairments will be discussed, together with strategies to help counteract the negative effect of these impairments on social-emotional development.

Dr. Anne Cronin, Occupational Therapy Professor at WVU will be the presenter for this session. This session was originally recorded 5/31/17.
