Understanding Emotional Regulation Difficulties
Emotional dysregulation can manifest as frequent meltdowns, difficulty in expressing feelings, and challenges in coping with sensory stimuli. These issues often impact a child’s social interactions and academic performance.
Role of Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy plays a critical role in addressing these concerns. By developing tailored strategies, therapists aid children in understanding and managing their emotions, enhancing their ability to process sensory information effectively.
Techniques and Approaches
Key techniques include sensory integration therapy, self-regulation strategies, and activities designed to improve emotional expression. These methods not only assist in managing emotions but also contribute to overall developmental progress.
Benefits for Children and Families
The benefits extend beyond the child, helping families and educators in Malta understand and support the child’s emotional and sensory needs.
