The following is a list of medical encyclopedia of terminology and conditions.  Click on a word for the full description.

Regulatory Disorder
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the hypersensitive child who is fearful of sensory stimulation, the under-reactive child who is self-absorbed and often withdrawn, the child who seeks out sensory information and has poor control of their behavior, and the child who may display a combination of the above but does not fit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.
