Winston Wallaby, like most Wallabies, loves to bounce. However, Winston can't seem to ever sit still and when he starts school he needs help to concentrate... Luckily his teacher Mrs Calm shows Winston how to settle down and focus his mind in class, and he learns new ways to help him with touch, feel, attention and awareness. This fun, illustrated storybook will help children aged 5-10 with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) recognise their sensory needs and develop tools to support them. A helpful introduction for parents and carers explains hyperactivity and how it can affect a child's perception of the world, and the appendices at the back provide useful strategies to be adopted at school and at home. Market: Parents, teachers and caring professionals working with 5+ aged children, especially those with hyperactivity, including children with ADHD, SPD and ASD.
My son is on the spectrum and all books from this series have been a godsend - both for us parents and also for my son who loves them as they are easy to understand and he can identify with the characters/settings.
This being said, these books are also a great support for teachers to help children understand and manage emotions, and in this case hyperactivity. Our son's teacher implements these books successfully in the classroom setting as they can be applied to all children.
This book of the series also has great resources/help through numerous templates that are included.
Absolutely recommended buy!

Adults will find the advice portion of the book to be a treasure of well-organized tips and suggestions. -- Joel Shaul, LCSW is the author of The ASD Feel Better Book and other books for children on the autism spectrum The authors offer us a gem of a book in the spirit of Dr Seuss. I saw my youngest son jump from the pages as the story of Winston taught the valuable lesson of how to support bouncy children (Wallabies) in the simplest of ways to help them be successful. It really touched my heart. -- Brian R. King, MSW, 'The Compassionate Dad' This book is perfect for all children to understand ADHD, SPD and ASD. It cleverly explains how Winston wants to control his actions and the frustration at not being able to. It then explains how including "movement breaks" helps him to be able to learn. It is delightfully written and includes fabulous illustrations - children are going to love Winston. -- Sue Larkey, Teacher, Author "Making it a Success" Winston Wallaby !
