Self-regulation is the ability to remember and connect information, problem solve, control impulses, delay gratification, and be persistent—and it is critical to successful functioning in today’s world. Language makes a number of unique contributions to the development of self-regulation. This workshops provides communication-based strategies that help to develop self-regulation for young children, students with language impairment, emotional/behavioral difficulties, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism, and those who have been traumatized or maltreated. The presenter combines her clinical expertise as a speech and language pathologist with her own research and the research of others to provide evidence-based techniques that can be implemented across a variety of ages and settings. Strategies facilitate the development of self-regulatory vocabulary in toddlers and preschoolers, increase self-awareness, provide verbal alternatives to acting out or withdrawing, build emotional literacy, and offer a verbal framework to plan, execute, and evaluate assignments and projects.
