Empowering Early Years CPD Workshop:

'Breaking down the barriers to learning for vulnerable young children:' PART 1 - PSED skills.

Self regulation and Emotional Intelligence development and their link to positive learning behaviours

Led by experienced Early Years Teacher Hannah O’Donnell, this new 3 hour professional workshop (part 1) for SENCOS, Early Years practitioners, Early Years and Reception teachers and those with a SENCO responsibility tackles understanding the basis of positive learning behaviours such as self regulation, emotional intelligence and attention and their link to effective cognitive development for each unique child, alongside supporting and enabling these skills.

The course primarily looks at:

*Identifying the precursors and links to effective behavioural development and
positive learning behaviours for young children upwards, through enabling and
developing physical skills alongside psychological and social skills..

* How cognitive executive functioning skills develop, such as self regulation,
attention, resilience, memory and emotional intelligence. How these affect
vulnerable young children who risk not achieving their learning potential
without effective and strategic intervention plans.

* How these essential PSED skills are a vital predictor of successful
achievement in key learning areas and positive outcomes and are developed
through supporting a child’s physical development as part of a graduated
response to identified needs.

*Understanding how enabling PSED skill development can support children in
their learning, such as those who have been diagnosed with mild autistic
spectrum disorder, attention deficits, Sensory Processing Disorder and those
struggling with behavioural or socio-emotional issues.

* Implementing cheap, easy and effective in-classroom interventions which break
down the barriers to learning and narrow the gap.

Course Synopsis: What will SENCOs and those with SENCO responsibility get out of this course?

  • šGreater understanding of child development in terms of socio-emotional skill development, linked to cognition and physical skill development and how this forms the basis for all positive learning behaviours and pro-social choices, ultimately enabling all children to achieve their full ptonetial.
  • šAn opportunity to reflect upon & apply information and ideas into strategic intervention and classroom-based planning as part of a graduated response to identified vulnerable children’s needs. The opportunity to meet with other local SENCOs within the geogrpahic learning community.
  • šIdeas which provide cheap and effective interventions for young children within the setting or classroom, based on recent research which can break down the barriers to learning and enhance reading and writing skills potential and communication, alongside enabling the pro-social and positive learning behaviours of each unique child .
  • šAlthough the focus will be on the development of skills for young children (2 upwards), many of the interventions and skills/ information discussed will form a basis for a whole setting/ school approach and enable skills gaps to be supported in older children or principles to be easily adapted- narrowing the gap for all children to achieve their potential as independent learners.
