Focusing Attention: Mindfulness Training for Young Children with Self-Regulation Challenges

Conference Year: 

2015

Primary Speaker name: 

For children with self-regulation challenges, learning and development in inclusive settings can be extremely difficult. Activities that support mindfulness – paying attention in the present moment - can support children’s attention, emotion regulation and compassion for self and others. Kate Turnbull will lead an experiential workshop for those who work directly with children. She will engage participants in enjoyable, developmentally appropriate mindfulness exercises - using music and movement - which they can use with children and families -- and for their own mindfulness.  Kate will provide a resource handout to support continued learning.
