Tools to Try Cards for Tweens & Teens is a visually rich card deck designed to help adolescents explore a variety of regulation tools and strategies. Expanded from the book Zones of Regulation, Tools to Try Cards for Tweens & Teens provides 50 practical, easy-to-use tools and strategies to help adolescents at the developmental ages 11-18+ explore, practice and choose tools to help them regulate at home, in school or in therapeutic and community settings.
The versatile, easy-to-follow cards are illustrated with lots of teen appeal – diverse and relatable tween-teen characters on oversize 4”x 6” cards with a large, readable, teen-friendly font. Expanding upon 22 strategies carried over from the Tools to Try Cards for Kids deck, they are now presented differently with language, level of maturity and illustrations to engage the tween and teen user, along with 28 new, accessible and subtle strategies. Also featured specifically for tweens and teens is the “Why to Try?” section on the card that explains the purpose and benefit of the strategy, as well as a metacognitive self-reflection area for adolescents to consider how the strategy works for them to regulate their Zones.
For best teaching practice, the card deck should be used in tandem with lessons from Chapter 4 in the Zones of Regulation curriculum book where tools are explored, as well as paired with other related Zones products, such as Navigating The Zones and its supplemental Advanced Pack to extend play.
