These cards are a powerful tool to facilitate emotional regulation as well as decrease undesirable behaviors in children. Each card depicts a different exercise with an accurate colorful illustration. These cards are ideal for children to release excess energy in a positive and constructive way. The cards include quick exercises that help children expend energy and slow exercises that induce relaxation and a sense of calm.
Although we encourage you to use the cards in a positive way, they can be used as a reasonable consequence for a fidgety, restless child who can benefit from sensory input.
These cards belong to the child and can be accessed by him at all times. They provide the child with a sense of power and control. Children can draw upon the exercises themselves which in turn encourages self management skills.
These cards were developed in conjunction with an Occupational Therapist.
HELPFUL TIP: They can be downloaded on polyester paper for strength and durability. We have found xerox, 4.7 mil to be an excellent option. They can also be printed on paper and then laminated.
