Self-Regulation in Children

Facilitator: Child Australia

Self-regulation is an essential part of a child’s learning and development. Sensory input is constantly occurring for each child to process. Understanding how children can respond to this continual sensory input can help educators develop each child’s ability to process and respond appropriately to what is happening around them. These responses to experiences and people (the sensory input) form an important part of social development. The ability to respond appropriately also contributes to future academic progress. Building relationships with the children and their families can assist educators in planning appropriate experiences to guide development.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Develop an understanding of the sensory input that occurs throughout a child’s day.
  • Process of self-regulation will be examined, linking this knowledge to social, emotional, physical and cognitive development.
  • Children’s behaviours and how these are related to self-regulation and sensory processing abilities will be explored.
  • Strategies and learning experiences to plan for children’s sensory needs and guide best practice.
