The ZONES of Regulation Tiffany Schuette School Counselor New Holstein Elementary School What are The ZONES of Regulation? The ZONES is a concept designed by Leah Kuypers, licensed occupational therapist, to help a student gain skills in the area of self-regulation. Self-regulation can go by many names, such as self-control, self-management, and impulse control. It is defined as the best state of alertness of both the body and emotions for the specific situation.

For example, when a student plays on the playground or in a competitive game, it is beneficial to have a higher state of alertness. However, that same state would not be appropriate in the library. What are The ZONES of Regulation? The ZONES are designed to help the students recognize when they are in different zones as well as learn how to use strategies to change or stay in the zone they are in. In addition to addressing self-regulation, the students have an increased vocabulary of emotional terms, skills

in reading other peoples facial expressions, perspective about how others see and react to their behavior, insight into events that trigger their behavior, calming and alerting strategies, and problem solving skills. How are the ZONES useful? A critical aspect of the Zones is that all team members know and understand The ZONES language. This creates a comfortable and supportive environment for the student to practice his or

her self-regulation skills. How are the ZONES useful? You can support the student during this process by doing the following: Use the language and talk about the concepts of The ZONES as they apply to you in a variety of environments. Make comments aloud so the student understands it is natural that we all experience the different zones and use strategies to control (or regulate) ourselves. For

example, This is really frustrating me and making me go into the Yellow Zone. I need to use a tool to calm down. I will take some deep breaths. How are the ZONES useful? Help the student gain awareness of his or her zones and feelings by pointing out your observations. Talk about what zone is expected in the situation or how a zone may have been unexpected. Share with the student how his or her behavior is affecting the zone you are in and how you feel.

Help the student become comfortable using the language to communicate his or her feelings and needs by encouraging the student to share his or her zone with you. Show interest in learning about the students triggers and Zones tools. Ask the student if he or she wants reminders to use these tools and how you should present these reminders. Make sure you frequently reinforce the student for being in the expected zone rather than only pointing out when his or her zone is unexpected. There is no such thing as a bad ZONE. It is important to note that everyone experiences

all of the zonesthe Red and Yellow Zones are not the bad or naughty zones. This is different than classroom behavior charts. All of the zones are expected at one time or another. The Zones of Regulation is intended to be neutral and not communicate judgment. Implementing The ZONES School-wide Step 1 Get a team together and Purchase Zones of Regulation Book By Leah M.

Implementing The ZONES School-wide (continued) Use The ZONES language school-wide and encourage students to be aware of what Zone they are in so they can self-regulate their reactions and behaviors.

Once they are aware of what Zone they are in, you can help them move to the Green Zone (happy, calm, ready to learn etc.) Post the Zones chart Upper grades make their own toolbox Lower grades (K-2) Teachers may choose to have a toolbox posted in which they can add strategies ZONES Lesson Plans and Videos

Other Tools and ZONES Visuals Benefits to The ZONES at the Elementary School Level LANGUAGE!!!! A common language for all staff to use with students. For example: A student comes to school in the morning and looks tired and is moving slowly. A teacher can say You seem like you are in the Blue Zone. The student recognizes they are in Blue Zone and use strategies to move to Green.

The Zones of Regulation are simple for kids to understand. Kids know the different colors, recognize their feelings and use strategies to move to Green Zone (calm down or feel okay). As a result students learn to self-regulate. After the initial introductory lessons are administered the continuing implementation lessons are delivered.
