In this episode, Jayson interviews occupational therapist and creator of the Zones of Regulation self-regulation program, Leah Kuypers. Leah has spent nearly all of her career working with children as both a private practice pediatric OT as well as a school-based therapist. But, it was during her Master's in Education program that she had an idea to develop a program simple enough for any school-aged child to understand. Based on 4 primary colors, the Zones of Regulation helps students to identify and express their feelings and how to react to these feelings.
