Mediational Intervention for Sensitizing Caregivers of Toddlers With Sensory Processing and Self-Regulation Disorders
Approximately 5–16 % of full-term infants with no other developmental diagnosis show difficulties in sensory processing and self-regulation. These difficulties are manifested in challenging behavior and put the toddler at developmental risk. Sensitive and adapted parent-child interactions can serve as a protective factor moderating the potential negative effects of toddlers’ sensory processing and regulation difficulties on their development. However, studies show that the quality of interaction of these toddlers with their parents is impaired. The current chapter presents leading models for explaining typical and disordered sensory processing and self-regulation processes in infants and toddlers. The focus is on the importance of early intervention with these toddlers to promote the quality of interaction with their parents. Within this context, the MISC-SP intervention program is presented.
