Kiddos that struggle with developmental delays often exhibit behaviors not consistent with their size, structure, or motor ability.
This can be a meaningful conversation with parents during the healing journey, especially for kiddos struggling with autism, sensory processing, or other cognitive delays, as an initial change of the nervous system 🧠 does not equal calm.
Substitute the word 'calm' for 'curious.' When a nervous system wakes up, a child's sensory system can be more seeking or sensitive, and behaviors can return to the "terrible 2's" or challenging rules or decisions.
As stressful as these behaviors are for parents - they are extremely good clinically and a sign the nervous system is catching up!
Here are the quick keys 🔑 to celebrate the fantastic healing journey and support parents through the tough changes.
