Teaching Self-Regulation

to Young Children

Jeanine Fitzgerald - Presenter

This session will discuss young children and teaching them to self-regulate. 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. We will also examine proven approaches to some of the above symptoms we observe when these skills are absent.
