Webinar: Teaching Emotional Regulation: Essential Skills for Students with Disabilities

However, current special education supports are not designed to address the complicated needs of students with ASD and other emotional and behavioral disabilities. Join us and learn about new compelling research in the area of Emotional Regulation that shows impacted brain region leading to a more comprehensive understanding of the type of therapies needed. We present a comprehensive review of the recent research (2014-2015) and then discuss relative to their treatment implications for educators. New methodologies, backed by current research, will be presented to teach the missing skills needed to manage Emotional Regulation.
