The Emotional Classroom: 
The Importance of Teaching Kids to Manage Their Emotions

Emotional regulation (ER) is not a criterion in DSM-V for a diagnosis of autism, ADHD, or other behavioral disorders. Yet behavioral issues are reported most for these populations. Research shows that ER is a critical component of these disabilities with fMRI evidence confirming deficit areas of the brain. To change behavior, we need to teach strategies to develop emotional regulation in and out of the classroom and enable students to develop new neural pathways to create lasting behavior change. This session will offer a proven method to teach emotional regulation in the classroom.
