The books show that meltdowns can occur not because a child is being naughty but because he or she is scared and overwhelmed. The Meltdown Kids books explain that the root cause of many meltdowns is fear and anxiety.
These books are suitable for anyone but will be particularly useful for children with a diagnosable disorder such as Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), autism, ADHD and attachment disorder.
Through entertaining and engaging stories that both children and parents can enjoy, The Meltdown Kids books deal with typical stories, whether at home, school or when out and about. They explain what triggers a meltdown, the form they take and they introduce strategies to help manage the meltdown and prevent them from happening in the first place.
