TEACHING SELF-REGULATION TO YOUNG CHILDREN on Tuesday, May 26th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm with speaker Jeanine K. 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 session examines self-regulatory-regulatory functions through a developmental lens and offers proven strategies to develop and strengthen them. This will be a Zoom Training.
