Description: Great for Occupational Therapists and/or teachers to help kids with identifying their body's arousal level/body regulation level. Goes hand-in-hand with wake up, calming, and heavy work strategies in order to get your engine (your body) to "just right" and "ready to learn". Great to pair with Emotional Regulation, or Zones of Regulation. It's important to teach kids that each "engine level" is expected in certain environments: (i.e. When it is bedtime we try to have a "slow" engine. When we play soccer we try to have a "fast" engine. When we are listening to the teacher in math class we try to have a "just right" engine).
