This clever card game introduces kids to these “anger alerts” and teaches 10 easy strategies they can use to calm down and retain their composure. As players race to get rid of their cards, they respond to anger-provoking situations. But before responding, they must invert an hourglass timer and wait 7 seconds. This delay reminds kids to stop and think before they act. An eye-catching poster displaying both anger warning signs and anger control strategies is included, along with four colorful sand timers—which are always a big hit with kids. For 2 to 4 players.
Using current research and contemporary examples, the book exposes the most common anxiety-enhancing patterns–including reassurance, accommodation, avoidance, and poor problem solving–and offers a concrete plan with 7 key principles that foster change.

This book challenges our basic instincts about how to help fearful kids and will serve as the antidote for an anxious nation of kids and their parents.

Ready-to-implement resources and approaches for effective professional care in school and clinical settings.
The reverberations of autism spectrum disorders among parents and siblings can be complex. Parents may grapple with the impact of their child's initial diagnosis, wrestle with the tension between their professional ambitions and family obligations, and labor to maintain a healthy union with their partners. Brothers and sisters may be given less attention, asked to assume a more adult role than they feel ready for, or strive for meaningful connection and communication with their sibling and parents.
Although the energy of clinicians, teachers, and other professionals working with individuals with autism spectrum disorder is often focused intensively on the child who is diagnosed, the practitioner can also be an invaluable resource for the child's family.
Drawing upon clinical research and firsthand family interviews, this book helps clinicians understand the experiences of parents and siblings of a child with ASD from the time of diagnosis through adulthood. It provides clear recommendations for sensitive, informed professional support.
