Varleisha Gibbs – Advanced Self-Regulation
Constant interruptions like temper tantrums, outbursts, melt-downs, impulsive behaviors, and violence are some of the most challenging behaviors you see in your practice. They can interrupt your therapeutic interventions and stall progress completely – and if left untreated, these behaviors can lead to depression or anxiety disorders later in the child’s life.
Teaching children to intentionally and effectively regulate feelings, thoughts, and behaviors can be difficult, especially when conditions such as ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, and sensory disorders are present. And unfortunately, self-regulation techniques are not one-size-fits-all approaches – they need to be customized to each individual child.
That’s why we’ve brought together leading experts from the fields of speech language pathology, psychology and occupational therapy, for this new, comprehensive course Advanced Self-Regulation: Practical Tools and Strategies for Kids with ADHD, Autism & more.
Learn how you can create an individualized treatment plan filled with advanced, evidence-based tools and strategies to help resolve the dysregulation your client is experiencing — so you can help the children in your care find success in everyday life.
Communication skills play an extremely important role in the development of self-regulation. In this module, you will get immediately applicable techniques through case studies and intervention videos, and discover new and innovative ways to help children develop self-regulation through language. You will also learn how to use language to improve self-regulation for children with:
- Language delays/disorders
- Emotional & Behavior Disorders
- Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder
- Attachment disorders
- Social Risk
