Our team works to develop ways to both measure and improve self-regulation skills in young children.
We are a team of faculty and students dedicated towards helping young children enter school ready to learn!
The Lab is led by Dr. Megan McClelland, the Director of the Hallie Ford Center for Healthy Children and Families. Her research, along with the work of many others, continues to show that early self-regulation skills (or the conscious control of thoughts, feelings and behavior) are important for academic success. As a research lab, our team works to develop ways to both measure and improve self-regulation skills in young children.
Self-regulation is a necessary skill for children that aids their development and success in school and life. This expertly-designed course gives you the training needed to implement evidence-based self-regulation activities in early childhood learning settings.
