Mount Royal University Symposium


Self-regulation is the ability to adjust our level of alertness and direct how our emotions are revealed in socially adaptive ways in order to achieve our goals. It can go by many names such as: self-control, self-management and impulse control. Autism is a bio-neurological difference in how the brain is wired. Simply speaking, children and youth on the Autism spectrum have areas where their processing is stronger than ours and areas where it is weaker and requires support.

The child cannot learn unless they feel safe both physically and emotionally. In this session, participants will learn the foundational principles of regulation, the importance of relationships, designing learning environment and use of various tools/strategies to support students in the classroom with diverse skills.
