Zones of Regulation
Self-regulation is something everyone works on as we encounter circumstances that test our limits. If we are able to recognise when we are becoming less regulated, we are able to manage our feelings and reactions to events.
Self-regulation comes naturally for some, but, for others, it is a skill that needs to be taught and practised as we all encounter circumstances that test our limits from time to time.
At Summit Point, we use the internationally acclaimed Zones of Regulation programme every day at Morning and Afternoon Circles. This explicitly and systematically teaches your child how to better self-regulate by categorising their feelings and states of alertness into four coloured zones. The framework provides personalised strategies to teach your child to become more aware of and independent in controlling their emotions and impulses, manage their sensory needs, and improve their ability to problem solve conflicts.
"We were desperate to help our son’s self-esteem and confidence. Enrolling him at Summit Point restored his belief in himself."
"Being encouraged to demonstrate his knowledge using educational technology has helped remove barriers to my child’s learning and made him less anxious about tests and assessment."
"The teachers at Summit Point go above and beyond to nurture the different learning styles of students."
"Rebecca supported us to understand our child’s strengths and challenges and find a way to foster his love of learning."
"We have been working with Summit for almost a term and my word, our daughter has come a long way since she started at the school."
"It’s a hard decision sending your child to a ‘special’ school, but now we’re out the other side, we realise how much our daughter needed the attention and environment that Summit Point offers."
"Her time at Summit gave our daughter the space and time to learn at her own pace, be recognised for her talents and participate in the running of the school."
"Graduating from Summit, our child is a confident learner and has a range of strategies which have helped her transition to high school."
