Areas of expertise
Every interaction counts - early communication and interaction and relationships as the foundations for self- regulation - delivered by Julie Revels
Aims and objectives:
The session will focus on the importance of the earliest interactions and relationships as the foundation for developing children’s capacity to self regulate through repeated experiences of co regulation. There will be a focus on the reciprocal nature of communication and interaction including references to research which informs our understanding of how it is vital to provide opportunities in the early years for communication and interaction which is ‘conversational’ in its nature.
