Parent Night – “What Does it Take to Regulate?” Practical Strategies to Support Emotional Regulation

May 18, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder face unique challenges in learning to regulate emotions and behaviors.  Challenges with emotional regulation can affect an individual’s relationships, learning and ability to access varied activities and environments.  Through this presentation, we hope to provide families, professionals and caregivers with a better understanding of the concept of emotional regulation as well as practical strategies to help an individual with ASD develop regulation skills.   We will explore levels of emotional dysregulation and help participants to create an individualized tool kit of language and behavioral intervention strategies.   Given that emotional regulation and dysregulation can look differently across individuals, we will take care to offer participants interventions that can be adapted to meet the needs of a variety of age and skill levels.

To RSVP for this event, please contact Eric Campbell at ecampbell@spurwink.org or (207) 871-1211 ext. 2155
