About this learning opportunity

Most teenage students' executive function skills are not yet at adult levels, yet the daily demands placed on our teens today are. Popular programs like Zones of Regulation seem to end at the elementary level, yet we know our teens are at the highest risk for experiencing poor mental health.  

In this session, we will look at what self regulation strategies can fit into the jr/sr. high classrooms. You will be given a chance to try self regulation strategies throughout the day, and there will be time to make a plan of action for making changes that would fit in your classrooms.
