Primary Speaker name:
Self-regulation has become recognized as a key area of early child development that prepares children for success in school and beyond. Yet, specific skills and strategies for promoting self-regulation development within early childhood settings may not be clear. This session will describe key self-regulation skills that can be taught to young children systematically and intentionally without any specific curriculum, including children with social-emotional challenges and developmental delays. A variety of instructional methods including use of puppets, small group activities, and role plays will be demonstrated in the session through video and modeling. Interactive discussion will encourage brainstorming about how to build this component of instruction and coaching into the classroom.
