Everyday Speech skill: Self-Regulation

Lesson Plans to Teach Self-Regulation

Self-regulation is the practice of managing emotions and impulses. Mastering self-regulation requires self-control and the ability to stay calm and ignore others’ behavior during negative encounters. This might look like cheering yourself up on a hard day or coping with stress in a healthy way when a challenge arises.

Mastering the art of self-regulation can be challenging for anyone and is an area where children can struggle, especially children with Developmental Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder or other emotional and social needs. Children need this skill to grow into internally balanced, self-disciplined and emotionally healthy adults, which is why many educators are increasingly teaching self-regulation to all their students in general education settings.
