Self Calming Cards
24 Ways to Calm Down
Looking for a new (or perhaps more successful) way of calming down your child or student? Each of these 24 illustrated cards describes how you can soothe your child with a different method. Choose from physical, auditory/verbal, visual, creative, nurturing and humorous methods of self-soothing, and see what works best. 16 of the cards provide step-by-step instructions for parents and teachers providing games and activities to use in conjunction with the calming cards. The cards and the accompanying instruction sheet also discuss how adults can model the use of self-soothing techniques such as taking a warm bath, making a joke to defuse an awkward situation, or singing a silly song. Each calming method includes suggested activities for a range of ages from toddler to adult.
