Explaining how the popular, universal 'Awesome and In Control' program works, the guide enables you to help children to keep calm and in control during everyday tasks including reading, writing and paying attention to others.


Simple Stuff to Get Kids Self-Regulating in School is a wonderful little book that talks in everyday language about one of the most important issues that occupational therapists and other developmental professionals working in schools should be focused on, for children with and without disabilities.
