This unique hands-on activity helps students who are highly anxious cope with their stress by systematizing social and emotional information. Using this self-contained product, the student literally sorts cards describing highly stressful situations into colorful pockets designating stress levels, ranging from 5-1, as a first step in changing the way he thinks about and responds to emotions such as anxiety, sadness and anger.

Suggestions for how to include it as part of a functional behavior assessment and a problem-solving activity are included.

A very useful resource for a range of students! Sep 17, 2008
I have used this activity with a wide range of students and have gotten rich information regarding "stressors." This helped me to then work with students on coping mechanisms and work with staff on prevention, when possible.
This book is a life saver Jan 7, 2008
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.
A MUST HAVE! Dec 29, 2007
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.
Excellent Autism Resource Oct 28, 2007
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.
