This year at NES we are introducing the ZONES. Zones of Regulation is a curriculum used to teach students how to regulate their emotions. You may be hearing conversations or comments about the zones at home so we would like to take this opportunity to share with our readers some basic info about the Zones.
Self-regulation is something everyone continually works on, whether we are cognizant of it or not. We all encounter trying circumstances that test our limits from time to time. If we are able to recognize when we are becoming less regulated, we are able to do something about it to feel better and get ourselves to a better place. This comes naturally for some, but for others it is a skill that needs to be taught and practiced. This is the goal of The Zones of Regulation (or Zones for short).
