Students do better when they are regulated and can manage their thoughts, feelings and behaviours. “FOCUS on Self Regulation" is a resource that was developed by ECSD Occupational Therapists to help children/students identify their level of regulation and to use developmentally appropriate Regulation Tools and strategies to maintain an optimal state of readiness. A unique feature of the resource is the quick and engaging four step FOCUS Sequence which incorporates both physical activity and social-emotional learning for all ages. The resource was developed for children between the ages of three and eight but has been adapted for older students.
