The Zones of Regulation ( is a framework for thinking as well as a curriculum geared toward helping students gain skills in consciously regulating their behaviors, including the management of their emotions and level of alertness. This, in turn, leads to increased self-control and problem solving abilities.

Introducing the new Zones Picture Studio! Team up and learn emotional awareness by taking pictures with your device. Scenarios are presented to students providing them the opportunity to reflect on how the scenario would make their body feel. Thinking about the cues from their body and brain, students use the app to capture what the feeling looks like on them, gaining insights on the physiological cues that accompany emotions. All pictures will be taken with your device's camera, stored on your device, and displayed directly in the app for easy review. Students can even create their own scenarios. The new Zones Picture Studio offers hours upon hours of fun and education.

Leah Kuypers is the author of the book, The Zones of Regulation (2011, Social Thinking Publishing). The Zones of Regulation was featured as a promising practice in Attention Magazine and is being implemented school wide in districts across the United States and Canada.

The Zones assists students in conceptualizing how they are feeling by creating a system to categorize their emotions and levels of alertness into one of four zones. Using a cognitive behavior approach, the App's learning activities are designed to help students recognize when they are in different zones, with each of the four zones represented by a different color.

The Zones is designed to be used with elementary students, secondary students, and adults.

Throughout the App, students learn how to use strategies or tools to manage their feelings and behaviors in each zone. Given each student's needs and preferences are unique, students explore various calming techniques, cognitive strategies, and sensory supports, building a toolbox of methods to use to regulate and move between zones.

However, self-regulation takes a lot more than knowing about tools. To deepen students' understanding of how to self-regulate, the App also explores how triggers or different events can impact how they are feeling.

The App highlights how to read others' facial expressions and recognize a broader range of emotions and perspectives about how others see and react to their behavior, insight into events that trigger their different zones, and when and how to use tools and problem solving skills to change the way they are thinking and feeling.

The App provides a fun, and engaging experience while learning and gaining valuable knowledge to assist in developing real-life skills. Students will be taken on an adventure throughout a town filled with excitement, rewards, and mini games.

To enhance learning, it is recommended that an adult closely monitor the student's progression through the App, asking probing questions and facilitating discussions about how the App's content can be generalized to the student's real life. The content of the App can be further explored using the lessons and learning activities featured in the curriculum book, The Zones of Regulation.

A Must-Have app - FABULOUS Resource

This app is such a fabulous resource to supplement the concepts in the Zones of Regulation curriculum! I started using it the 1st day it was released with several social skill groups in my elementary school setting. I have a quite "spirited" group of six 2nd and 3rd grade students, some of them on the autism spectrum, others with emotional/behavioral needs. They have been excited to come to social skills group every day this week to see what comes next in this invaluable app! Learning activties are interwoven throughout game components where users can earn coins, achievements, unlock mini-games, and more. I would HIGHLY recommend this app for educators working on social/emotional/behavioral skills of all ages - elementary-middle & high school. This would be a wonderful resource for parents to use at home as well to reinforce skills their children learn in social skills groups or therapy. Wonderful!

Not up to par

I had either this game or one similar years ago. I purchased this to work with students who struggle with regulation. They were disappointed that they could basically just run in circles. Once they got to the “Stop, Opt, Go” I thought there would be more things for them to do. This game is similar to 2 Zones of Regulation lessons. I was hoping for more.
