What are the Zones of Regulation?

The Zones of Regulation help children, understand and manage their emotions, sensory needs, and self-regulation skills.  The zones categorise emotions and states of alertness into four colour-coded zones, used alongside our zones of regulation choices, we can help children to understand what they can do to help themselves regulate emotions and communicate to those around them, how they are feeling and what they need to help them:

Blue Zone

This zone represents a low state of alertness. Children in the Blue Zone might feel sad, tired, or sick. They may need to calm and regain energy.

Green Zone

The Green Zone represents an optimal state of alertness. Children in this zone are focused, calm, and ready to engage. They feel happy, content, or relaxed.

Orange Zone

Zone: The Orange Zone represents a heightened state of alertness. Children might feel frustrated, anxious, or excited. They need strategies to help them stay in control of their emotions and be supported by choices to try and make them feel better.

Red Zone

This zone signifies an extremely high state of alertness. Children in the Red Zone are overwhelmed by intense emotions such as anger, fear, or panic. They require immediate support to calm down and to be understood.
