Description: ***This is a 2 day event May 10th and May 11th***
TMR uses the ICF model and follows an 8-step process to identify limitation in mobility and their connection with functional outcomes which match caregiver concerns. Range of motion and/or control improves using indirect techniquest by understanding the relationship between a hypo mobile area in one area creating hyper mobility elsewhere. Postural symmetry improves the patient can better access control. Caregiver are instructed in family friendly therapeutic play and position activities to incorporate into daily routines. Therapeutic positions are in the direction of ease which is well received by patients as it is a pain free concept. Functional outcomes are rechecked post treatment.
Total Motion Release-Level 1 will provide extensive lab time for the therapist to learn the foundational TMR concepts, a systematic process to identify restriction in mobility, the single plane exercises, combos and alternative positions. The student will also be introduced to increasing range of motion with a pain free method, strengthening, postural control, transitions, weight shifting, pre-gait and gait training.

Description: About The Zones of Regulation
The Zones of Regulation is a framework and curriculum designed to foster skills in self regulation, including emotional control, sensory regulation, and executive functions. It is a systematic, cognitive behavior approach that uses four colors to help students visually and verbally self identify how they are functioning in the moment given their emotions and state of alertness. The model incorporates Social Thinking concepts to help students use perspective taking, to identify how they are thinking and feeling, and understand how their thoughts and behavior impact those around them. Through using the curriculum individuals become more self aware and learn tools they can use to regulate to a more expected state. The Zones of Regulation curriculum is published by Social Thinking Publishing (www.socialthinking.com). It can be used effectively in home, school, and clinical settings, as well as in conjunction with previously taught regulation strategies.

About the Presentation
The Zone of Regulation presentation provides teachers, therapists and parents with hands on knowledge on the nature of self regulation and strategies for improving self regulation and emotional control in individuals of all ages. The presentation addresses topics such as the brain’s involvement, typical development, sensory processing, emotional regulation, and executive functioning. Audience participants will learn an explicit, stair stepped method and tools to guide students in utilizing The Zones framework across situations and environments to regulate sensory needs, impulses, and emotional states to social demands.

Visuals and student work samples are highlighted to illustrate numerous learning activities. A variety of tools (sensory supports, calming techniques, and thinking strategies) are explored to help students recognize their internal emotions, sensory needs, and thinking patterns in each zone, when shifting from one zone to another, and t
