Series 2: Sensory Sensitive Parenting

The Parent/Child Relationship- The key to helping a child regulate 
In this training, we will introduce parents to the concept of co-regulation. Many parents express concern that their child experiences difficulty regulating, especially when interacting with them and are looking for strategies to help time together be more successful.
