About the Forum

The State School Teachers’ Union WA (SSTUWA) continues to provide early childhood educators with opportunities to develop effective industrial and professional practice, understandings and knowledge. This forum will address the importance of an intentional play- based approach to help develop regulation and build resilience in in young learners.

About Claire Orange

The SSTUWA welcomes Claire Orange to this event.  Claire is the mum of four boys, a therapist, author, media spokesperson, speaker and passionate advocate for better outcomes for children everywhere. As the co-Director of BEST Programs 4 Kids, Claire is dedicated to pursuing and providing better preventative childhood mental health and wellbeing practices.

The Presentation

The road to regulation and resilience is long and bumpy – and sometimes made even bumpier when a child experiences anxiety. Childhood anxiety adds detours, stop signs and pot-holes along the life-learning journey that need extra time and skill-training to overcome.

Join Claire to explore the circuitry of regulation and resilience; what gets in the way and what’s needed to build a firm foundation for every child.

Claire will encourage participants to overlay ‘the anxiety lens’ to understand how anxiety interrupts the development of necessary pathways, and to reflect and discover ways to support a child not only to cope, but to thrive.

Come together to explore how, with considered planning, our early learners can engage in challenging, developmentally appropriate learning experiences all the while, fostering resilience.
