Navigating the Zones Game & Advanced Pack
Navigating The Zones Game (age 8+) was created by Leah Kuypers, creator of The Zones of Regulation, along with Teri Rossman and Elizabeth Sautter. An interactive teaching tool designed to extend the curriculum, the game walks participants through the “Zones Pathway.” The Pathway is a visual, sequential, and concrete road map that helps structure learners’ thinking and processing about the problem-solving sequence that is at the center of self-regulation. You should have a strong working knowledge of the concepts and vocabulary in The Zones of Regulation curriculum book to use this product successfully. Our new ecofriendly, streamlined game packaging has removed all plastic inserts. The more compact size not only reduces the toll on the environment and saves on shipping costs, but also requires less space for storage. All game parts and components remain the same.

Zones Triggers Poster 18"×24"*
This poster relates to Triggers. Triggers are unwelcome events, situations or sensations that create less comfortable feelings. Examples of triggers may be a smell that makes you gag, getting picked last for a team, or misplacing something you need. Use this poster to keep track of your learner’s triggers. Noticing our triggers helps us to be prepared for when they happen again. This way we aren’t as surprised when our feelings change and can regulate and/or problem solve easier. Learners can follow up by completing their own Triggers Worksheet. (See Lesson 9 in The Zones of Regulation curriculum for more information.)
Stop, Opt, & Go Poster 18"×24"*
This poster supports individual problem solving and group conflict resolution. It also can be used proactively to prepare students to manage themselves when they encounter previously identified triggers. (See Lesson 17 in The Zones of Regulation book for more information.)
