If You Are Angry and You Know It - Emotional Regulation Strategies

Strategies to manage big emotions are crucial for students who are autistic, ADHD or struggle to express emotions safely. In this class we will use games, role-play, visuals and music to teach students how to self-regulate their emotions.

My name is Bella, and I am a certified teacher. I have taught in inclusive schools as well as behaviour schools for 20 years. I have always taught a variety of children with different disabilities, especially autistic and ADHD students. Teaching children to manage their emotions has always been part of classroom management, and I used to do this at least once a day at circle time in my school. 

I hold  my first degree in teaching, but I also hold a second degree in Social Work (2004) and a Level 3 Diploma in Children's Psychology (2019).

In addition, I have attended the following courses:
✨ Understanding Behaviour as Communication: A Therapeutic Approach 2023
✨ Tips & Tools to Manage Anger 2022
✨ Understanding Autism 2021 
✨ Mindfulness for Daily Living 2019
✨ Understanding Anxiety 2019
✨ Behaviour Management (in classroom) 2015
✨ NLP Diploma in Life Coaching 2014
✨ Effective Communication Techniques for Teachers (2014)

I have a daughter who is autistic, a husband who is dyslexic and has ADHD. I stopped teaching in public schools four years ago, and from my home and also online, I started tutoring and doing interventions for autistic and ADHD children. I also teach ukulele and guitar on Outschool, which is my second passion.

My classes are fun, interactive, small groups of children where each child finds their voice and shines bright! 
No homework is necessary.
𝗟𝗶𝘀𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝘀𝘂𝗽𝗽𝗹𝗶𝗲𝘀: ☆ 2 colourful balloons. 1 balloon inflated and 1 not inflated, please. Young children will need assistance to blow the balloon and tie it up as well as parental supervision; please, reach out if you don't have balloons or there are latex allergies involved, I can offer alternatives. ☆ a shaker/bell/maracas; ☆ a whistle/recorder/harmonica...etc to blow on; ☆ felt tip pens and 2-3 sheets of paper to draw on; ☆ space to dance around; ☆ a drum stick or a wooden spoon.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
*** Please note that students can't engage in direct conversation sharing personal feelings and experiences related to their emotions. If you notice that your child's microphone is on, and they start sharing something like that, then I will have to mute them, and they can continue the conversation with you, if you chose so.
