About The Zones of Regulation The Zones of Regulation is a framework and curriculum designed to foster skills in self regulation, including emotional control, sensory regulation, and executive functions. It is a systematic, cognitive behavior approach that uses four colors to help students visually and verbally self identify how they are functioning in the moment given their emotions and state of alertness. The model incorporates Social Thinking concepts to help students use perspective taking, to identify how they are thinking and feeling, and understand how their thoughts and behavior impact those around them. Through using the curriculum individuals become more self aware and learn tools they can use to regulate to a more expected state. The Zones of Regulation curriculum is published by Social Thinking Publishing (www.socialthinking.com). It can be used effectively in home, school, and clinical settings, as well as in conjunction with previously taught regulation strategies. About the Presentation The Zone of Regulation presentation provides teachers, therapists and parents with hands on knowledge on the nature of self regulation and strategies for improving self regulation and emotional control in individuals of all ages. The presentation addresses topics such as the brain’s involvement, typical development, sensory processing, emotional regulation, and executive functioning.

Visuals and student work samples are highlighted to illustrate numerous learning activities. A variety of tools (sensory supports, calming techniques, and thinking strategies) are explored to help students recognize their internal emotions, sensory needs, and thinking patterns in each zone, when shifting from one zone to another, and t
