Synopsis: This workshop will take a deeper look at empowering principles and their application to advocacy. Empowering Principles help children learn important skills like self-regulation. There are two types of Empowering strategies: Physiological Strategies, which focus on the internal physical needs of the child. These include things like hydration, blood sugar, and sensory needs. Ecological Strategies focus on the child’s external environment and guide children toward learning self-regulation skills. Ecological Strategies include things like transitions, scaffolding (guided support appropriate to a child’s level that facilitates learning), and daily rituals.
In this Zoom presentation, advocates will be able to:
- Identify the intervention of practical applications that can be used in their advocacy
- Gain a better understanding of the principles through children's behavior videos and proper interactions when that behavior arises.
Participants will receive 2 hours of continuing education credit.
