2-Day Virtual POPARD Super Workshop
May 13 & 14, 2021 9:00am-3:00pm
Difficulties with self-regulation are a common challenge for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), significantly impacting learning and behaviour. Self-regulation skills at a young age have been linked to future achievements in school and life, pointing to the importance of prioritizing and teaching this set of skills. In this 2-day interactive super-workshop, participants will: recognize how common challenges associated with ASD impact self-regulation, become familiar with Shanker’s 5 Domain Model of self-regulation, apply evidence-based self-regulation strategies as they analyze case studies, create a planning tool and design goals for their students, and much more! By the end of this workshop, participants will be equipped with a toolbox of skills and resources to both structure the environment and teach skills to support students’ self-regulatory abilities.
Objectives: Participants will:
Summarize definitions and frameworks for conceptualizing and understanding self-regulation
Differentiate between self-regulation vs. co-regulation
Recall the different stages of the development of self-regulation
Understand how the environment influences students’ self-regulatory abilities
Identify and discuss the 5 domains of Shanker’s model
Understand optimal self-regulation
Discuss operational definitions of self-regulation goals across domains
Recognize student stressors and develop strategies for supporting students’ responses to such stressors
Give examples of class-wide and individual strategies to improve students’ self-regulation
Practice identifying strengths and weaknesses of students’ self-regulation across domains using case studies
Analyze case studies and identify evidence-based strategies to support self-regulation
Create intervention plans based on case studies
Develop a toolkit of appropriate self-regulation interventions and strategies for specific domains
Audience: This training is directed toward employees of BC school districts and independent schools. This includes teachers, paraprofessionals, and other educational staff supporting students with ASD at any grade level (K-12) in developing their social, academic, and adaptive skills.
