This set of BREAK cards is designed to be used as a visual aid when requesting breaks. BREAK cards can be useful in developing an awareness of when stress or levels are beginning to escalate, and a short break is needed to regulate.
Therefore, they are a fantastic tool in assisting with developing communication skills, as well as assisting in a reduction of meltdowns, challenging behaviours and avoidant/escape behaviours.
They can be useful for children/teens or adults on the Autism Spectrum, as well as those with language and communication difficulties. The BREAK cards may also be a useful tool in managing emotional regulation difficulties for children with ADHD and children with high anxiety, or even those who are easily overwhelmed.
The BREAK cards can be used in many settings such as the classroom, in an ABA therapy program, in speech and OT sessions or even in the home environment. So many possible applications!
Three sizes of cards are provided to make them versatile in application!
They also come in two different visual variation to suit your needs.
