Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) has captured the attention of special educators as a new way to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse population of "digital natives." Now, game developers are teaming with SEL experts to become agents of change --using fun, innovative approaches to build skills that help children with special needs to regulate emotions, and to develop social sensitivity, expression, humor, conflict-resolution and collaboration. SEL is a catalyst for making positive change in student behavior, improved social interactions and better academic outcomes. Join a nationwide audience of special education leaders for a lively kick-off  to the agents of change series as we unpack SEL and look at  IF... The Emotional IQ Game, a critically acclaimed SEL tool endorsed by children, parents, therapists, doctors, teachers, academics and scientists.
