When parenting, teaching and working with children who have social, emotional, and/or sensory challenges, we often put the emphasis on learning new skills, but stress management skills are often not addressed. This is unfortunate, because stress creates barriers to the very things we are trying to teach. Besides, it can lead to meltdowns. In short, it is crucial that children learn and develop skills to manage their stress as independently as possible.

Fun graphics and an interactive style make it ideal for children grades 3 through middle school.Learn More
