Teaching Self-Regulation to Young Children Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics: Advanced Specialized Care ,
Sponsor: Windham Early Childhood Educators Co-op
Instructor: Jeanine Fitzgerald

Self-regulation is a complex set of skills that exert influence over internal sensations and states. These skills are necessary for consistent performance, behavior and school readiness. Without them, a child may experience a life of chaos characterized by explosiveness, violence, anxiety, substance abuse, impulsivity, hyperactivity, distractibility or mood disorders. This skill development begins at the point of conception and continues into the late twenties. This session examines self-regulatory functions through a developmental lens and offers proven strategies to develop and strengthen them. At the completion of this session, participants will be able to: 1) identify the normative pathway toward regulation from infancy through young adulthood; 2) plan how to support the development of physiological, emotional ,behavioral and cognitive regulation by applying the neuroscience research, and not American market research boxed curricula.
