1) Self-Implemented Self-Regulation Break
I have a student that has a difficult time with self-regulation skills. In addition to implementing the Zone's of Regulation for this student/class, we are giving him a self-implemented self-regulation break. He has a timer, which is set for 5 minutes, that is attached to the door. When he feels like he is sad or going to cry, he is able to take the timer and go for a walk/drink/bathroom break. He always returns on time after his 5 minutes are up and quickly returns back to work in his general education classroom.
2) Wiggle Cushions!
Wiggle cushions are a great way to get the wiggles out! Wiggle cushions are great for students who: need to move during seated instruction, or have poor writing posture.
