The Panicosaurus: Managing Anxiety in Children Including Those with Asperger Syndrome
This book is suitable for parents, teachers and caring professionals working with 6+ aged children who suffer from anxiety, including children with Asperger Syndrome.
Have you ever felt a sense of dread and worry creeping over you? That might be the Panicosaurus coming out to play...Sometimes the Panicosaurus tricks Mabel's brain into panicking about certain challenges, such as walking past a big dog on the street or when her favourite teacher is not at school. With the help of Smartosaurus, who lets her know there is really nothing to be afraid of, Mabel discovers different ways to manage Panicosaurus, and defeat the challenges he creates for her.
This fun, easy-to-read and fully illustrated storybook will inspire children who experience anxiety, and encourage them to banish their own Panicosauruses with help from Mabel's strategies.
Parents and carers will like the helpful introduction, explaining anxiety in children, and the list of techniques for lessening anxiety at the end of the book.
