Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This poster depicts a feasibility and preliminary effectiveness study of the Zones of RegulationĀ©. In addition, it describes development of a coregulation curriculum for parents. Single subject multiple baseline data indicated increased ADL independence for study participants. The coregulation curriculum includes modules on easing transitions and eliminating meltdowns. This poster provides a firm foundation for future study of OT treatment for self-regulation deficits in children.
