Challenges in self-regulation are common in children who have difficulty communicating. This presentation will outline common stressors children might encounter that could negatively impact their ability to engage, communicate and regulate. We will cover how self-regulation develops through co-regulated interactions and provide a framework to guide consideration of the child’s stressors, communication and regulation during interactions.


This will be presented live via webinar on October 23, 2019 and a recording will be available for later access. When purchased, the link for webinar attendance will be given 24 hours before presentation.
