*If you are unfamiliar with the Zones of Regulation® published by Social Thinking Publishing, here is a quick synopsis from Leah Kuypers' website. It is important that people familiarize themselves with the Zones of Regulation curriculum before using these materials.
"The Red Zone is used to describe extremely heightened states of alertness and intense emotions. A person may be elated or experiencing anger, rage, explosive behavior, devastation, or terror when in the Red Zone. A person is described as “out of control” if in the Red Zone.
The Yellow Zone is also used to describe a heightened state of alertness and elevated emotions; however, one has some control when they are in the Yellow Zone. A person may be experiencing stress, frustration, anxiety, excitement, silliness, the wiggles, or nervousness when in the Yellow Zone.
The Green Zone is used to describe a calm state of alertness. A person may be described as happy, focused, content, or ready to learn when in the Green Zone. This is the Zone students predominately need to be in the classroom.
The Blue Zone is used to describe low states of alertness, such as when one feels sad, tired, sick, or bored.
