The Zones of Regulation is a systematic, cognitive behavioral approach used to teach self-regulation by categorizing all the different ways we feel, and states of alertness we experience into four concrete colored zones. The Zones framework provides strategies to teach students to become more aware of, and independent in controlling their emotions and impulses, manage their sensory needs, and improving their ability to problem solve conflicts.
The Zones of Regulation incorporates Social Thinking® (www.socialthinking.com) concepts and numerous visuals to teach students to identify their feelings/level of alertness, understand how their behavior impacts those around them, and learn what tools they can use to manage their feelings and states.
