The Chilled Children Autism Supplement has been written and developed in school with teachers and children. This supplement is designed to be used alongside the full CHILLED CHILDREN Creative Imagination programme.
The elements of this book are designed to help children on the autistic spectrum to explore, express, understand and deal with their feelings. It also helps them to appreciate their gifts, build confidence and self-esteem and to work together.
Chilled for Autism is a 5 session workbook based on emotional expression through Drawing, Imagination and Visualisation.
"This resource is a must for teachers who, from time to time, may need a quick 'pick me up' or 'calm down' session that will promote learning readiness but not take up a busy timetable. Chilled Children Visualisation is vital for those schools with limited resources or those teachers stretched for preparation time. This is a no fuss simple resource, easy to use, follow and build into a hectic school day.”
“I used Chilled Children before SATS sessions last May. The children responded well and achieved a good level of concentration before each test. I noticed the class were calm and composed, alert and positive in their approach to the test”
