Actions and Detail Panel
Developing Emotional Literacy with ASC children
Tue 13 June 2017, 16:00 – 18:00 BST
This Summer Twilight will be delivered by Lynn McCann.
With emotional understanding and regulation being one of the difficulties that Children and Young People with autism have from the early years to adult hood, we will explore what and how you can teach your pupils with ASC about emotions. We will discover how we can teach emotional literacy, self awareness and regulation as they grow through their school years and involve them in their own understanding and development. There will be some practical ideas and activities to explore.
