The Zones of Regulation: A Curriculum Designed to Foster Self-Regulation and Emotional Control
A popular framework and easy-to-use curriculum for teaching strategies for managing emotions and sensory needs to children, students, and clients ages 4+. Rooted in cognitive behavioural therapy, The Zones of Regulation uses four colours to help individuals identify how they are feeling in the moment given their energy, emotions, and level of alertness, thereby creating a coloured system to guide them to metacognitive strategies and tools to support regulation. By understanding how to read their bodies, detect triggers, think about the social context, and consider their reactions, students learn how to increase their ability to regulate their emotions, manage their sensory needs, and become more self-aware and skilful problem solvers. Printable activities and visuals are included in a download link. Also sold separately.
Note: The Zones of Regulation 3-Poster Set sold separately.
The Zones of Regulation 2-Storybook Set
Join Gabriel and his classmates as they learn about The Zones of Regulation® through two storybooks. The first, The Road to Regulation, helps students become more aware of their bodies and feelings and describes the four colored Zones used to think and talk about these feelings. Through a colorful, imaginary adventure to “The Regulation Station,” the second storybook introduces the use of “tools” (or strategies) to help students identify ways they can learn to manage their different feelings at school and home. Use this two-storybook set with relatable characters and situations to support children ages 5-11 as they learn the easy-to-use framework and the popular curriculum. These storybooks are intended to be used in sequence, alongside related lessons within the curriculum book, The Zones of Regulation. Also sold separately.
Note: The Road to Regulation Poster is sold separately. Adapted from two pages in the second storybook, The Regulation Station, this 24” x 18”poster reviews the four steps needed to (1) recognise our feelings, (2) identify our Zone, (3) choose a tool, and (4) use the tool to help regulate.
Tools to Try Cards for Kids
Learning to regulate within each Zone takes time and lots of practice. Tools to Try Cards for Kids is an easy, engaging way to introduce over 50 regulation strategies to kids ages 5–10 and empower them to make choices toward figuring out what works best for them. Every card portrays a relatable child performing a regulation tool on one side and a how-to-do-it description on the reverse. Each card includes a metacognitive self-reflection where kids consider how they feel after using the tool, how it can be used to help them regulate in their Zones, and decide whether it’s the right tool for them. These hands-on, multi-sensory tools are actively described in the second of the two children’s storybooks, The Regulation Station. Tools to Try Cards for Kids also supplements lessons in The Zones of Regulation curriculum and is a valued resource when using Navigating The Zones cooperative game.
