Many issues can trigger a worsening of behaviors, such as stemming, that will need to be addressed to get recovery back on track. Oftentimes these issues go undetected by parents simply because the child cannot communicate that they may be experiencing pain or discomfort. Things like dental, sinus, bladder, ear infections, or severe allergies can derail the recovery and have a major impact on behaviors. nnThis is not a relapse or a regression. When this occurs, it is either because the child is in pain or a drop in blood pressure to their head from another source. There may be an obvious trigger like a recent trauma or stressful event, but the child needs a medical examination to rule out other sources in many cases. The most common trigger I see in my office is dental issues. Getting an x-ray and having your child assessed by a professional is the recommended course of action. Please see the included checklist for common triggers.
