Virtual Classroom (Live) Help your Students Develop Self-Regulation Skills to Improve Behavior and Increase Learning K-3 Webinar

This webinar will address strategies that meet the needs of those children who are impacted by these differences in their brain maturation. However, the participant will realize that these strategies apply to ALL children!

Course Description/Agenda


Overview:
This webinar will address strategies that meet the needs of children 3-5 who are impacted by different rates of maturation for self-regulation.The purpose is to provide practical tools for those clinicians, educators, therapists or parents who are directly involved in working with children 3-5 and slightly older.

Numerous visual supports to address inhibitory control, social skills, and mental flexibility, will be presented through demonstrations and videos. However, there may be administrators, social workers, university professors, therapists, state and national service center consultants who may want to share the information with their clients and audiences 



Why should you Attend :Children who struggle with self -regulation often look like those who just aren't paying attention, have difficulty making transitions or are purposely not controlling themselves. They may be unaware of the connections of their behavior and the consequences of the behavior. If you don't have self-regulation, you may act out, refuse to share, resulting in tantrums or meltdowns, get placed in timeout, sent to the principal's office, then miss important learning time. A downward spiral occurs as the child gets more upset and continues to act out when given punitive consequences. 

Executive functioning begins to emerge around 4 years of age. Expecting a 2 or 3 year old to recognize social parameters and to be responsible for his actions may be farfetched but these skills can be taught. It's just like going to the gym. The more one practices these strategies for self-regulation, the neural connections will be strengthened. 

However, what happens when the prefrontal lobe and frontal cortex are compromised due to faulty brain wiring and sensory traffic jams, such as seen in autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorders, anxiety disorders, mood disturbances, behavior disorders, post-traumatic disorders, poverty, attachment disorders? 

This webinar will address strategies that meet the needs of those children who are impacted by these differences in their brain maturation. However, the participant will realize that these strategies apply to ALL children!
