Zones of Regulation (K-12 event) - December 14, 2017 http://www.cesa3.org/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=19693&memberid=79 Training:       Zones of Regulation (for all K-12 Educators)

Date:             December 14, 2017

Time:             9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (Check-in 8:30 to 9:00 a.m.)

Location:      SWTC, 1800 Bronson Blvd., Fennimore, WI (Lenz Center - Room 365)

Cost:             $100 (Includes Zones of Regulation Book and Lunch)

Description:  The Zones of Regulation is a framework and curriculum designed to foster skills in self-regulation, including emotional control, sensory regulation, and executive functions. It is a systematic, cognitive behavior approach that uses four colors to help students visually and verbally self-identify how they are functioning in the moment, given their emotions and state of alertness. The model incorporates Social Thinking concepts to help students use perspective thinking to understand the social context and how the management of their feelings impact those around them. Through using the curriculum, individuals become more self-aware and learn tools they can use to regulate emotions to meet environmental and social demands. It can be used effectively in home and school, as well as in conjunction with other social emotional learning (SEL) strategies.

Presenters:

Resa Hawes: Program Support Teacher for the La Crosse School District in the area of autism and classroom experience at the elementary level with students with autism and intellectual disabilities.

Angela Korson: Program Support Teacher for the La Crosse School District in the area of Emotional/Behavioral Disabilities and classroom experience in an off-site program for students with significant mental health issues at the MS/HS level. In addition, Angela has classroom experience at the elementary level in a program for students with Emotional/Behavioral Disabilities

Not only will they present information on Zones of Regulation, they can answer questions regarding students with a variety of behavioral needs.  Don't miss this opportunity.
