The Zones of Regulation is an evidence-based curriculum designed to teach children to identify their feelings and levels of alertness using four concrete, color coded zones. This system provides a foundation of expressive language, helps develop effective regulation tools, helps determine how to problem solve positive solutions, and helps children understand how their behavior influences others’ thoughts & feelings.
MYFS Sociables: Together We Play The goal of MYFS Sociables: Together We Play group is to help kids learn and practice social skills. Social skills are an important part of a child’s development and success. Social skills will be taught through collaborative art work, games, and storytelling. The skills taught will help kids to look at “size of the problem”, body and spatial awareness, working together, and conflict resolution
SOCIABLES Teen Group Successful social functioning is important for teens to demonstrate at school, at home, and in the community. Those with Autism Spectrum Disorder struggle to generalize across these settings and often get stuck in novel situations. The primary goals of this group are to teach teens how to decode social situations and develop a repertoire of appropriate responses in accordance with social rules across various settings. Curriculum will be based on the works of Michelle Garcia Winner (Thinking About YOU Thinking About ME), James Loomis (Staying In The Game), Brenda Smith Myles, Melissa Trautman, and Ronda Schelvan (The Hidden Curriculum: Practical Solutions for Understanding Social Situations).
