Every child has a unique pattern of taking in and responding to information from the senses. Most young children learn to build on their own individual capacities and accept help from others as they learn to cope with their environment. But some children need help in overcoming the difficulties they face when responding to information from their senses in order to achieve the self-regulation they need to explore the world around them. This book is written for a multidisciplinary audience of infant-family professionals. The authors integrate and synthesize knowledge from a variety of fields to help readers understand sensory development and learn about effective assessment and intervention approaches.
