38. Emotional Dysregulation and the Challenges that come with itMay 27, 2021
Emotions are difficult to understand and interpret for all of us, and each of us demonstrates our emotions differently but for our kids on the spectrum, it is so much more challenging. For most of our kids, these intense emotions are very unpredictable, scary, and overwhelming.
We have to teach them how to appropriately respond to their emotions and this isn’t an easy task and won’t happen overnight.
We need to validate their feeling while teaching them a different way to REACT to the feeling.
It will take TIME, patience, and practicing it over and over and over again with each incident.
