Intended for children with all kinds of behavioural, sensory, emotional and anger problems, this books jazzy, with it style should appeal to young children. As it must be used with an adult, it could well be something whole classes can benefit from, particularly if there are several children who actually have these problems...the exercises are fun and easy to do. Sensory processing has much to do with children who wiggle a lot, such as those with ADHD and those who get so involved with physical activity that they cant stop by themselves...lots of black and white illustrations add to the whole, and information at the back of the book for parents, teachers, therapists and carers will be of great use in planning sessions.
