Welcome to the show notes for Episode 23 of the OT Schoolhouse Podcast.

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.

Listen in to learn more about Leah and the fantastic program she has developed!
