Sensory and behavior issues are often complex, intermingled, and pertinent to most clinicians who work with children. This book provides information and strategies for distinguishing between Sensory-based and non-Sensory-based behaviors, as well as intervention techniques. Topics addressed include causes of behavior, Sensory integrative dysfunction, environmental factors that impact behavior, managing challenging behaviors, and implementing Sensory diets. The case studies and worksheets included offer practical suggestions when working with children. This book will help analyze behavior in children to determine if Sensory issues exist or if it is a behavior related problem as well as identify what factors are the root cause of the problem. Laminated cards include intervention strategies for challenging behaviors.
