Webinar: Assistive Technology for Self-Regulation

Program Description

Recorded: June 3, 2021 – Self-regulation is defined as an individual’s awareness of and ability to modify their social, emotional, and sensory processing functions. This impacts the overall behavior and level of participation across activities and environments unique to the individual.

Participants learn:

  • How self-regulation can positively or negatively impact function across the lifespan.
  • About myths regarding self-regulation, co-regulation, and dysregulation.
