I have an autistic son in mainstream school who is 7, and this book is perfect for his level of understanding to how to manage his anxiety in class. We find schhool is where he is most anxious and I have given the book to his LSA to help them both understand. Some pages are work book style and they can draw what makes them anxious etc. I would say it's best for primary aged children, who have problems communicating how they feel or what upsets them.

A lovely book that in a very simple way provides young children coping stategies to deal with anxieties and stress caused by unexpected changes in routines, etc. This book was previously published under the title 'When My Autism Gets Too Big!'

Not very impressed with this book. Unfortunately it did not have a 'look inside' option. Had I been able to see it before I would not have bought it.
The book is aimed at very young children, my child is an 8 year old with Asperger's, and the book came across as being quite patronising to her. Also, and possibly most problematic, the book is written using American terms that do not really relate to British children. I feel that it would have been handy to know this prior to purchase.

I think this book is a little bit expensive for what it is.

However, the content is simple, easy to read and "get across" to my ASD child with speech & language problems.

The techniques are simple but effective. I don't regret buying this book and I will be letting my friends at my support group have a look at it.

I bought this book to help my son who has ASD and ADHD. It has proven to be excellent in helping him understand his feelings and when his worries/temper is getting too much. It provides a clear route for the child to understand how they feel and steps to cool/calm down. I would highly recommend it, and know it would help all children when they find it hard to express and understand their feelings.

A short but helpful book which is most useful for younger primary aged children. Most helpful for those who struggle to cope with 'change' rather than general anxiety.

We have just told our 8year old son that he has aspergers (which went very well). This book has given us/him an excellant and simple way to communicate his anxiety to ourselves and school. A must have book for parents who want an easy to use scale. Fantastic pictures with lovely colours that can be photocopied. Our son loves it. Highly recommended.

I bought this book to use in school and it's a lovely little book. We have used it sucessfully to introduce the concept of anxiety to primary age children. I would recommend it to all teachers and parents of children who worry!

Extremely adaptable / versatile strategies to help kids/young people with high levels of anxiety to recognise a) own feelings, b) triggers that increase anxiety and c) how to develop their own ways of coping and decreasing anxiety. Small book which, if properly used, can take a whole academic year to implement. Good for adults as well.
