Social, Emotional, and Behavioral Learning for Young Children: What’s Typical, What’s Not, and What to do About it

August 12, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Toddlers and preschoolers are busy working on developing the most important skills for future success – social, emotional, and behavioral skills! As adults, we can lose track of how important these skills are in favor of pre-academic skills. This workshop focuses on understanding how development of these skills is needed for future learning and academic success, ways to support and encourage the development of these skills in everyday classroom activities and routines, and strategies for behavioral intervention and red flags in social development that indicate further evaluation and intervention is needed. Practical strategies, ready-to-use information, and hand-outs will be provided.


1. Social, emotional, and behavioral learning in young children  – In-depth information about the social-emotional and behavioral skills that are learned and developed in the preschool and kindergarten years to be prepared for success in elementary school. This topic will review the important parts of social learning that develop during this time and help providers/educators identify when those skills are not yet emerging and mastered.


2. Social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties in young children -In-depth look at common and more subtle red-flags for intervention. Review interventions that can be implemented in everyday routines and activities to help the child change and develop, as well as discuss how to talk to parents about concerns.


3. Using everyday activities and routines to push social, emotional, and behavioral development – The classroom is a great place to provide interventions and push skill development. This topic identifies ways to use everyday activities to facilitate social learning development in children who struggle.

Presenters: Heather Dukes-Murray, Ph.D. and Meghan Barlow, Ph.D.
