Building self-regulation skills among educators and children
We all know the value of low conflict, positive interactions between educators and children, to support their social, emotional, behavioural, and cognitive development.
We also know that children who have difficulty regulating their emotions are rated by educators as significantly more stressful to teach, even when compared to children with other challenges.
With 1 in 5 Australian children identified at school entry with developmental vulnerabilities, educators have 2-5 children in each group who may present with specific developmental needs.
The will is there to support all children, but at times, the strategies may not feel effective in enhancing children's emotional regulation skills and reducing challenging behaviours.
Over time, that can result in increased stress and reduced job satisfaction among educators.
In this seminar, Dr Shawna Lee of Seneca College, Toronto will share evidence-based, practical strategies to build self-regulation skills among both educators and children.

Learn strategies to address the common traps that children and educators fall into when communicating their needs
Be able to implement some simple, effective and practical strategies that have been proven to reduce disruptive behaviour
