Topic: A.E6 Fostering Children’s Executive Functioning and Self-Regulation Skills through Collaborative Partnerships


Synopsis: Self-regulation (SR) is the ability to manage our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours to achieve our goals. It involves being able to stay focused, control impulses, and adapt to changing situations. Executive functioning (EF) refers to a set of mental skills that help us get things done. This includes abilities like planning, organizing, problem-solving, and paying attention. It's like the "CEO" of our brain, helping us make decisions and accomplish tasks.

We know from research that EF and SR skills shape children’s development in powerful ways and lay the foundation for success in school, relationships, and life. Researchers have also identified strategies that caregivers can use to promote the development of EF and SR skills for children with different needs.

The objective of this workshop is to provide a platform for participants to discuss and brainstorm strategies to support the development of children’s EF and SR skills. In line with the theme of this year’s conference, we will focus on exploring ways to (a) develop and strengthen collaborative partnerships between teachers and parents, and (b) develop broad practices at the centre-level to create learning environments that are conducive to EF and SR skill development.

Through this workshop, participants can expect to

Share with and learn from fellow attendees about their current strategies for promoting EF and SR skills in children.

Develop some new ideas for working collaboratively with parents and colleagues to create opportunities for children to develop their EF and SR skills both at home and in school.
