This resource has been amazing! I have used it with clients age 9-16 both with and without ASD traits. And to think I bought it on a whim. What I really like is that it can be used to open up conversations about what really bothers the child, things that may not occur to most people who are asking direct questions. The card sort includes items like, washing my hair, someone's breath, being bumped from behind, and the universal trigger -riding on the school bus! Thanks for creating this tool for clinicians, intervention specialists, counselors and parents alike.

An excellent teaching tool for my Autistic students. I was a way to get non-verbal and students with limited language skills to express and understand what makes them lose control. I used it frequently in my classroom. I preceded this lesson by reading: When My Worries Get Too Big! by Kari Dunn Buron.

Being the grandmother of an autistic boy and also a special education paraeducator, this item is a MUST HAVE! It is very hands on and
a great visual tool. It can be used in so many different situations.
You will not be disappointed.
Customer Review: Polly J. Austin -
As a school psychologist working with children with all types of social skills concerns, this book is a must. The children do not have to put things into words as they just put the item in the pocket they feel it belongs. The items are very short and can be read to the children, as well. It is so visual and concrete that a child can express what bothers him without the stress of trying to put it in words is no longer there to bother him. Students seem to really like it. I have had a couple ask to play that control game again. This was definitely worth the money.
This book is a great visual tool for students on the autism spectrum. It uses colors and numbers to help children understand their own emotions and begin to self regulate. I highly recommend it to parents and teachers.
