The Role of Experience and Emotional Developmental Readiness in Education

Watch Session
Overview

Overview

The interface between emotional development and education is a process of developmental integration of experience during the preschool years and is essential for preparing young children with autism (birth to 5) for successful learning. This process is one of experience acquired through interactions within relationships that allow you to know your feelings, desires, and sense of who you are, in conjunction with experience discovering the environment. Experience even has its own developmental progression or hierarchy, and we will describe the infant’s role in taking charge of his personal experience which creates need, desire, and persistence to learn.

Based on the Developmental, Individual Difference and Relationship Model and Foundational Capacities for Development, we will also explore how education is a process, rather than content, and how emotions organize social, intellectual, and functional capacities such as social attention, initiation, intentionality, problem solving, and symbolic expression of emotions. We will examine the barriers related to the child’s individual differences, which is basically what autism is—brain wiring differences, the accommodations that might impede development, and how relationships provide the perfect platform for the child’s neuroception of safety for discovery and emotional readiness for competence and confidence as a learner.
