OT, School Counselor, and Educators Talking About Embedding Self-Regulation Lessons into the Classroom

(Short Version, 2.5 minutes) The third grade students in this video are engaged in a co-taught lesson by an occupational therapist, intervention specialist and school counselor. Based on the Zones of Regulation (Kuyper, 2011) curriculum, students learn how to analyze how they feel into four zones and regulate their emotional state, manage their sensory needs and improve their problem solving skills using a variety of cognitive, behavioral, and sensory strategies. In this video, students are learning about personal triggers (i.e. irritants) that cause them to move out of a calm state and strategies for helping them move back into a more self-regulated state (e.g. deep breathing).

(Long Version, 5 minutes) Hear from more special education and general education teachers about the benefits of teaching students how to express their feelings and regulate their emotions and behaviors.
