Parent Session

This session will look at emotional regulation in young people with high learning potential  Learn about emotional overexcitability, how supporting a child’s self-awareness and self-regulation need to come before working on other areas, what the zones of regulation are and how to deal with anger at home. There will be time to talk to other parents about how emotional regulation affects your child(ren) and to learn from others about what works for them.
