Autism and Emotional Regulation
For many autistic children, regulating their emotions can be challenging, sometimes anxiety, anger, tiredness, and confusion can be overwhelming resulting in emotional distress. We can support autistic children and young people by creating a supportive environment, however, we also need to support children to recognise and regulate their feelings. Helping children to become aware, label and express their emotions gives them the skills to manage alongside their peers.
 
This training is suitable for any adult working with or caring for an autistic child. It will help you teach a child how to
•    Identify the emotion he or she is feeling
•    Rate the intensity of emotions
•    Support expression of feelings to a supporting adult
•    How to support a child to engage in practical and proactive emotional regulation strategies
