Very useful for use at home with individuals as well as providing a framework for school, staff and other professionals working with children who struggle to regulate their emotions.

What a fantastic book!! We have been working with the levels with the psychologist but this expands on what we have been doing. I didn't want to give it back. Even my 6 year old loved and related to it!
