Self Regulation

Calm, Alert and Ready to Learn: Self-Regulation Information for Parents

The Ministry of Education and the Durham District School Board are committed to Achieving Excellence in Student Success and Well-being. Self-Regulation includes awareness of what stresses us, how it impacts us and the ability to develop ways to manage it to be calm, alert, and willing to learn.

Dr. Stuart Shanker states, “Self-regulation refers to the energy expended when we respond to stress, and then recover,” and can be viewed through the Five Domains: Biological, Emotional, Cognitive, Social and Prosocial.
