The pilot parent program described in this article is based on literature that suggested greater parental acceptance of a child would help the child make gains in self-esteem. Six parents of children with sensory integrative dysfunction were seen individually for 6 weeks in order to enhance the parents’ understanding of their children’s sensory integrative problems and to discuss ways to help build their child’s self-esteem.
