Self-Regulation Skills for School - POPARD Super-Workshop

Overview

Open to all BC School District and independent school personnel, participants will become familiar with a variety of strategies and curriculum resources for structuring the classroom environment and improving students' self-regulatory abilities.

Self-regulation is an important construct for teachers to understand because it impacts students’ learning and behaviour. In this workshop, we’ll define what self-regulation is, consider how challenges associated with ASD impact our students’ self-regulation across five domains (biological, emotional, cognitive, social and prosocial), understand the three cyclical phases of self-regulation and provide evidence-based strategies for improving self-regulation abilities across each domain. Participants will become familiar with a variety of strategies and curriculum resources for structuring the classroom environment and improving students’ self-regulatory abilities. Teachers will leave this workshop with the knowledge and know how to implement these interventions in their classrooms.

  • Participants will be able to define self-regulation.
