Dual Diagnosis for Students with ASD: Positive Strategies for Supporting Self-regulation: Addressing Anxiety, ADHD and Emotional Processing for Students with ASD
Presented by Ruth Aspy, Ph.D., Psychologist, Author & National Speaker
Self-regulation is where successful functioning and independence starts. There is no way to get there without it. ASD presents some challenges to developing self-regulation skills – sensory differences, difficulty with flexibility and change, difficulty focusing on the salient aspects of the situation, difficulty modulating emotions, and challenges understanding the social world. This presentation provides information on how to identify when the characteristics of ASD are interfering with self-regulation. A range of strategies for supporting regulation and building self-regulation skills are discussed.
