Understanding the sensory and emotional world of your child

The Just Right State parents’ programme is a six-session course based on the principles of Sensory Attachment Intervention, devised by Eadaoin Bhreathnach. M.Sc. Consultant Occupational Therapist and Attachment Counsellor, to provide parents with an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding about how their child’s nervous system works, to observe their child’s ability to self-regulate, and finally, consider how to provide a regulating environment in the home.

Self-regulation in this context, refers to the capacity to regulate physiological responses and respond in an appropriate and organised manner to environmental demands, such as engaging in an activity or engaging with others ( Bhreathnach, 2014; JRS programme).

The programme is in person, experiential and participatory and aims to promote shared fun and enjoyment within the group!
