A child's ability to regulate themselves and their executive function skills are essential life skills in school and in all environments.

We should be incorporating practical and effective strategies to help children develop self regulation and executive functioning skills for children in their everyday lives.

How do we know if the strategies we are using are effective in the short and the long term? 

Assistive and educational technology have expanded to offer learners more opportunities and options for learning. Students now have access to many more technology-based learning opportunities than ever before. Children have powerful learning tools available in their hands even with the simplest and most basic hand-held technologies and phones.

More technology for learning is not the answer, as we have seen with remote learning where more use of technology has not resulted in improved grades or skills over the last two years.

In this webinar, we will review evidence supporting the effectiveness of implementing sensory regulation into children's daily lives as an important basis for effective learning. The focus will be on incorporating strategies that will be effective in the classroom to help all students with sensory regulation before and during academic activities.

This webinar will focus on research that clearly indicates that sensory-based approaches are essential for children with special needs in the classroom. We will also present practical and effective strategies that educators can implement into their classrooms to help students with sensory regulation and self-control. 

There will be a strong focus on the need to monitor progress with practical, easy-to-use ideas to determine which sensory strategies really make a difference.
