This sparkDEBATE focused on what are co-regulation and self-regulation in the early years with Sue Asquith. These descriptors have become of great interest as this terminology was introduced at the last update of the EYFS. Contentiously, self-regulation is now included in the EYFS Learning Goals.

Most of the early years community would agree that little children need to be helped through co-regulation for much longer than five years old.

Sue Asquith, an international consultant, and early years trainer, shares her knowledge with us about self-regulation and gives us ideas on how to help children with their emotions using co-regulation practice.
