Today's 'Thing We Love' is something for Parents (or Professionals) with children with sensory needs, or difficulty with regulating emotion for other reasons.

It gives children and adults great ways of describing how their bodies feel (like 'fast and wiggly'), and then lots of really simple activities you and your child can try to self-regulate when you feel that way.

I've used this book in lots of ways in feeding therapy, both individually and in small groups. I think it could be such a great basis for talk about self-regulation in the classroom too.

It is always off the shelf and being used in the Speech Therapy office.

The Author, Lauren Brukner, has two other books on similar themes too.

A great resource that's really practical.
