Many children with complex behaviours and neurodiversity are struggling with chronic dysregulation. Chronic dysregulation reflects how the child’s brain development, including the developing brain-body stress response system, has been influenced by a child’s prenatal/post natal and early years experiences.  

 It is important for early childhood educators to understand the brain-body stress response system so that they can explore the many potential underlying causes of a child’s dysregulation and effective neuro-developmental approaches that will support the child’s capacity to regulate and the parent’s capacity to co-regulate the child/youth.
