I work with kids with Autism who often have great difficulty with self-regulation. This is one of the main things that caused me to be drawn to kids yoga & other relaxation techniques to help them. It was heartbreaking to witness one of my six year old patients have a total meltdown last week. She often has these episodes of total disregulation the day after an evening field trip or event. Like many girls her age she is highly interested in the movie Frozen. So I made the following visual supports to help teach her breathing and relaxation techniques that should help with self-regulation.
