Games & Activities to Optimize Self-Regulation (K–12)
Limited Capacity filling up

A strong relationship exists between the development of executive functioning skills and self-regulation. The Centre on the Developing Child at Harvard University identify executive functioning and self-regulation as "critical supports for learning and development". Though we are not born with these abilities, "we are born with the potential to develop them through interactions and practice". When children and youth have the opportunity to develop the skills needed for self-regulation, they are better suited to make healthy choices that affect them and their classmates. Join Ever Active Schools as we explore how classrooms and community programs are the optimal settings to promote these skills through fun, creative and original activities.
