Fostering Emotional Regulation
This event will take place between 2:00pm and 3:30pm on 11/10/2023
Presented by BBIS OT/ASD Advisory Skye Sergeant
Sensory processing and regulation are essential components in our understanding of emotional regulation. Sensory and emotional regulation are commonly requested areas for Occupational Therapy advice and support across the Bi-borough. Through this training, we aim to assist participants to navigate through emotional regulation and sensory processing needs to better foster emotional regulation for pupils in the Bi-borough.
Many pupils require their supporting teachers to understand sensory differences and to foster emotional regulation. However, not all pupils with sensory processing challenges are known to the Occupational Therapy services, or they may not meet the threshold for targeted or specialist input. Our SEN OT team provides a variety of free online and in-person training courses, including this online course, to support teachers. The aim of this training is for participants to further their knowledge and understanding of emotional regulation and therefore a clear basic knowledge of the 8 senses and sensory processing is highly recommended to attend this course.
