The Zones of Regulation is the original framework and curriculum (Kuypers, 2011) that develops awareness of feelings, energy and alertness levels while exploring a variety of tools and strategies for regulation, prosocial skills, self-care, and overall wellness. This curriculum provides us an easy way to think and talk about how we feel on the inside and sort these feelings into four colored Zones, all of which are expected in life. Once we understand our feelings and zones, we can learn to use tools/strategies to manage our different Zones in order to meet goals like doing schoolwork or other tasks, managing big feelings, and healthy relationships with others. The simple, common language and visual structure of The Zones of Regulation helps make the complex skill of regulation more concrete for learners and those who support them.
Does your child struggle to read due to dyslexia or visual stress? Are they reluctant to engage with books or read for pleasure? We work with the best writers and illustrators to publish super-readable, accessible books that help every child experience the joy of reading.

Social Stories are short descriptions of a particular situation, event or activity, which include specific information about what to expect in that situation and why.
Social stories can be used to:
develop self-care skills (for example, how to clean teeth, wash hands or get dressed), social skills (for example, sharing, asking for help, saying thank you, interrupting) and academic abilities
help someone to understand how others might behave or respond in a particular situation
help a person to cope with changes to routine and unexpected or distressing events (for example, absence of teacher, moving house, thunderstorms)
provide positive feedback to a person about an area of strength or achievement in order to develop self-esteem
as a behavioural strategy (for example, what to do when angry, how to cope with anxiety).
