Conscious Discipline (SEL) for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
According to the CDC, 1 in 54 children in the United States have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Understanding how to help these children navigate classroom dynamics, academics, social and emotional learning (SEL) and their own unique brains is critical for their lifelong success. Learn how to utilize Conscious Discipline to support students with ASD in connecting, developing social skills, managing emotions, learning and thriving.

Here's What You'll Learn:
Discover how to utilize Conscious Discipline to promote social, emotional and academic success in students with ASD through enhanced routines, rituals and self-regulation. Transform your educational approach with strategies for creating an educational culture in which all stakeholders thrive. Cultivate a sense of belonging, connection, cooperation and joy, even with students who seem resistant or unreachable.
Who Should Attend
Educators, administrators, special education teachers, social workers, school counselors, school psychologists and parents for age groups of 3 and up will discover essential strategies for working with children with ASD. Previous knowledge and implementation of Conscious Discipline is helpful, but not essential.
Facilitators Dr. Becky Bailey, Master Instructor Kim Jackson and Certified Instructor Cheryl Cotter will draw on expertise and personal experience to equip you with the tools you need to help students with ASD thrive.
All attendees will receive a Workshop handout and Conscious Discipline tote bag.
Integrate SEL and self-regulation into everyday interactions and structured activities.
An estimated 1 in 54 children in the United States have Autism Spectrum Disorder (CDC, 2020). Ineffective SEL instruction strongly contributes to academic difficulties and poor post-school outcomes for these children. Conscious Discipline’s adult-first, transformational and trauma-responsive approach provides adults with a clear pathway for preparing these children with the connections and skills required for lifelong success.
At this two-day workshop, Dr. Becky Bailey, Master Instructor Kim Jackson, and Certified Instructor Cheryl Cotter will teach you how to use Conscious Discipline with children who have ASD. You’ll learn evidence-based strategies to create a cooperative, compassionate, equitable and sustainable educational culture in which all children can thrive.
Key objectives include:
- Learn how to use Conscious Discipline to increase the social and emotional learning of children with ASD, including those who seem resistant, reactive or unreachable.
- Build a better understanding of brain development as it relates to children with ASD, including why a student with ASD may react differently.
- Develop an understanding of why it’s helpful to present information differently for students with ASD, and how to do so effectively.
- Modify routines, rituals and self-regulatory strategies to responsively reach students with ASD.
- Uncover powerful strategies for fostering the connections and SEL skills that set the stage for lifelong success.
- Establish a sustainable, equitable School Family culture that cultivates belonging, connection, cooperation and joy.
