My child's support system handed me a dvd on how to tell my child no instead of information on how to help him.

Sensory is important, but some discipline is needed too.

I think what your team might be trying to tell you is that sometimes the reaction you are getting might be from behavior rather than purely a sensory issue. As an OT, I see this often. Sometimes it's hard to tell if an outburst was caused by behavior or a real sensory issue. I agree that sensory issues NEED to be addressed, but at the same time, a child needs to have good behavior. Take a step back, and make sure you are not reacting in a way that will continue the behavior. See my newsletter that deals with this situation: http://sensorysolutionsinc.blogspot.com/search/label/sensory%20processing

Parents tell me all the time that they can't believe what their child will do with me, but won't do with them. I try very hard to be aware of a child's limits, respect them but push them at the same time. It is a hard balance to find, but when you do, you can see some great changes.
