In the simplest terms, self-regulation can be defined as the ability to stay calmly focused and alert. Students with learning disabilities (LDs) and/or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be poor self-regulators when compared to their peers without LDs. Students with LDs may need more support to manage their thoughts, behaviours, and emotions and deal with stressors. This video provides viewers with the opportunity to reflect on how self-regulation can impact student learning, and how educators can support students in managing their thoughts, behaviours, and emotions.

In this animated video, we discuss the challenges faced by students with LDs as they try to develop their self-regulation skills and what educators can do to help these students on their learning journey.
