Self-Regulation Programs
(Alert/Zones of Regulation)
Grade 3-6
Fall Session (+ Parent Session included): October & November 2016, dates to be determined

The Alert Program uses the analogy of a car engine to introduce the concepts of self-regulation, a key component in focus, attention, concentration and therefore learning. “If your body is like a car engine, sometimes it runs on high, sometimes it runs on low and sometimes it runs just right.” Parents and students will increase their awareness of levels of “alertness” in themselves & others. They will also learn sensorimotor strategies or “engine tools” to adjust their engine speed.
