Supporting Self-Regulation in Preschool (webinars)

Learning Level 2: Intermediate/Application

Intended Audience – Administrators, ECSE/General Educators, Paraeducators, Family Members, Family Educators, Psychologists, Social Workers, SLPs, OT/PTs

Description – When working with children in preschool, it is “a given” to provide structure, predictability, and routines. It is even more vital when children with disabilities are also included. In this two-part webinar, Practical Strategies will be presented to support the maturation for self regulation. Self-regulation is not fully mature in adults until the early and late 20’s. Setting up the physical structure as well as schedules, transition markers, Power Cards, Keychain Rules, Positive Behavior Support Booklet and other visual strategies will help to support and teach self-regulation which is one of the strands of executive functions.

Continuing Education – This webinar will provide 4 contact hours for the following:

  • Educator License Renewal
  • CDA (Child Development Associate) credit in area(s) 2
  • CE credit for SLP, SW, LCPC, PT, and OT professionals
  • Gateways to Opportunity credit in area B (Org. ID# B40093, Event ID# )

Full participation is required to receive a certificate.

Presenter(s)

  • Kathy Kaluza Morris
    Kathy Kaluza Morris has been an educator for 46 years as a speech therapist, teacher in self-contained unit for behavior differences (including autism and emotional disturbances), PPCD teacher for moderate to severe disabilities, resource elementary, and diagnostician/supervisor where she implemented one of first LIFE Skills programs in Texas. She was a behavior and assistive technology consultant in a Texas education service center supporting 42 school districts from pre-K to 12. She left to start her doctoral program in autism and behavior and started her own business, igivuWings, in 1999. She has since been presenting all over the word, including all 50 states, Canada, Singapore, and other international sites. Her most hot topic is executive functions, because districts and agencies across the world realize that ameliorating and addressing executive functions will support all psychological and developmental disorders as well as neurotypical students. Kathy and her husband, Guy, “walked the walk and talked the talk” after the premature birth of their twin sons, Kirk and Drew. In April, 2017, they received the ARC Lifetime Achievement Award for their lifelong professional and personal work with persons with disabilities.
