The Zones of Regulation

The Zones of Regulation is a curriculum based around the use of four colours to help children self-identify how they’re feeling and categorise it based on colour. The children learn different strategies to cope and manage their emotions based on which colour zone they’re in. Children are taught through the zones how to regulate themselves when they are feeling different emotions and prompts them to develop a 'tool box' of strategies that support them to process their emotion in a healthy manner. Additionally, the Zones of Regulation helps children to recognise their own triggers, learn to read facial expressions, develop problem-solving skills and become more attuned to how their actions affect other people.
