|Regulatory Disorder is a condition found in young children. Children with regulatory disorder can be described as over-or under sensitive to sensory stimulation. As a result, they can be fussy, dislike change, and may have difficulty with sleep/wake cycles. For example, some babies may not react to sounds or pictures unless they are very loud or bright versus some babies who are very frightened by a quiet noise or cry at any attempt to snuggle with them.|
There are four distinct behavior patterns that have been found in children with Regulatory disorders. They include the hypersensitive child who is fearful of sensory stimulation, the under-reactive child who is self-absorbed and often withdrawn, the child who seeks out sensory information and has poor control of their behavior, and the child who may display a combination of the above but does not fit directly into one of the categories exclusively.
