Are you struggling with students who are having trouble focusing and calming their bodies? Do you wish you knew more about self-regulation tools and strategies, sensory processing, and how to help your students be more successful in school? After reading this guide written by an Occupational Therapist, you’ll feel prepared to handle more classroom behaviors and be more confident in your ability to regulate your students.
I created An OT’s Guide to Regulation in the Classroom to support teachers, mental health staff, therapists, and other OTs. A student can not learn if they are dysregulated and you can’t teach if there are disruptions occurring throughout your lessons or therapy sessions. This guide begins by teaching school staff how to identify when and why a student is dysregulated and how to suggest specific regulation strategies and tools to support an optimal state for learning.
This 30+ page, no fluff guide is written by an Occupational Therapist. We are experts in regulation, sensory processing, and looking at the whole child. That means looking at multiple factors to help you decide the perfect tool for your students.
- Commonly used definitions
- 36 links to preferred regulation tools to use in the school
- Education on low and high arousal behaviors to understand the beginning signs of dysregulation
- Alerting and calming activities to facilitate a just right state
- Components that can impact regulation
- How sensory processing impacts regulation
- Our 8 sensory systems broken down into observable behaviors to help us identify their impact on regulation
- Strategies for modifying the environment and organizing a students personal space
- A look at adapted seating (when and how to use it)
- Appropriate regulation tools (with links) for the classroom vs. Individual setting
- Education on oral tools and regulation garments,
- When and how to utilize heavy work and breathwork
Putting it all together:
