In this interview we explore how some avoidant behavior may be a function of sensory dysregulation rather than what we typically think of an anxiety. Ruth Goldfinger Golomb and Suzanne Mouton-Odum have written Psychological Interventions for Children with Sensory Dysregulation  which discusses how children with sensory systems that either overregister or underregister sensory input can appear to be anxious. A child with a very sensitive auditory system may avoid fire alarms because of the intense sensory discomfort the sound creates rather than a fear of something bad happening. We explore this important topic in this interview.
