As we begin a new school year, what have we learned about young children - early childhood - and distance learning?


This talk will provide current research and information about the importance of children’s self-regulation for school readiness and success. It will focus on the malleability of self-regulation and interventions that have been successful in promoting these skills in young children. The presenter will share research about the Red Light, Purple Light! self-regulation intervention and games and activities that teachers can use to promote these skills during remote instruction.
