Zones of Regulation

The Zones of Regulation curriculum provides lessons and activities which teach children skills in self-regulation. Through practice, children can develop improved emotional and sensory self-management. Join us for an introduction to the curriculum and learn ways to incorporate these practices in the home and school environments.

Kathy Nicholson is an occupational therapist with From the Heart Therapy Services and is certified in Sensory Integration assessment and therapy. She has had more than forty years of pediatric experience in both the clinical and school settings.


Whether your child has been diagnosed with special needs or has particular challenges yet to be identified; whether they are spirited, struggle with reading or writing, or have sensory issues; whether they have learning, emotional, or behavioral differences, or fall into the quirky kid category, we’ll explore the means to help you help your child here in the Westlake area with monthly guest speakers and parent discussions. This series is targeted toward parents of children throughout Eanes ISD, whether in public, private, or home schooling, and is open to everyone.

Some past presentations are available on the Westbank Library YouTube Channel.
