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.
