Self-regulation is an important life-skill that children develop as they interact with their social environment and peers. A child's ability to self-regulate is a predictor of their school engagement, academic success, and peer acceptance (Jahromi, Bryce & Swanson, 2013). When teaching students with ASD, it is important to recognize and understand the deficits that may cause difficulties with self-regulation. This synthesis of current research studies provides educators with an overview of self0regulation deficits among children with ASD and strategies for helping students with ASD to self-regulate.
