Skills for Social and Emotional Learning
We all know how important a positive state of mind and social skills are to move through life successfully, but do we know how these skills relate to a successful inclusive education experience? Research shows that healthy social and emotional skills are among the most consistent indicators of success for young people with learning disabilities, even more so than academic factors. This edition of the ISN Newsletter demonstrates the links between social and emotional learning (SEL) and effective inclusive education. SEL is defined as the process of socialization and education related to personal, interpersonal and problem-solving skills and competencies. We will explore the multifaceted role of SEL and its preventive potential in inclusive school settings, specifically in the area of learning environments.
