 – The Zones of Regulation: A Curriculum Designed to Foster Self-Regulation and Emotional Control

Please note that this new edition has a ‘Digital Companion Page’ which replaces the USB Card.

This popular, easy-to-use regulation framework and award-winning curriculum teaches strategies for managing emotions and sensory needs to children, students, and clients ages 4+. Rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy, The Zones framework uses four colors to help individuals identify how they are feeling in the moment given their energy, emotions, and level of alertness, creating a colored 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, individuals learn how to increase their ability to regulate their emotions, manage their sensory needs, and become more self-aware and skillful problem solvers. Activities and reproducible handouts and visuals are included in the curriculum along with instructions for digital access. Select updated Emotions Reproducibles are available for download to all The Zones of Regulation curriculum users. All products which extend teaching about The Zones of Regulation require the use of this curriculum to teach with fidelity.

New updated emotions illustrations!

Inclusivity and representation of all learners are important to us! We are pleased to announce that we have included a more diverse representation of characters within our Zones emotions illustrations throughout the 2021 printing of the curriculum book. While eight characters can’t possibly embody all the spectrum of humanity, we hope that learners see glimpses of themselves and those they know among this new cast. Download the new free Zones Emotions Reproducibles HERE.

Please note: There are copies of this book in circulation with a USB that may not include these newly updated illustrations. Updated versions of select Reproducibles are available for download to all The Zones of Regulation curriculum users.
