Helping Children to Develop Self-Regulation Skills
Participants will focus on early child development, research, and educational practices that enable infants and young children to reach their maximum potential. The underlying theme is practicing with empathy. Participants will learn how to help children self-regulate, practice self-regulation and model appropriate behaviors. Practical and hands-on training during this presentation will prepare participants to put these skills into use in the field.
