MISC is an acronym that stands for; Mediational Intervention for Sensitizing Caregivers, is associated with two components.

The emotional components help in building love between the caregiver and the child naturally which is so essential at the early childhood stage of child development because love opens the door for learning.

The cognitive components are very instrumental in the child’s brain development and reasoning. Focusing gets the child’s attention (seeks clarity of perception), Affect brings meaning and excitement to the child’s environment, Expansion encourages the child to seek information beyond the sensory, to explore, to ask and to seek adult help, Competence encourages the child to have successful experiences and to complete tasks, and finally Regulation encourages the child to think before doing things, to  organize and plan in advance.
