Publication Reviews and Customer Comments
"It was good to see the stall at Special Needs London - stuff we could use with secondary students that doesn't patronise them! Looking forward to getting my hands on your wonderful resources!"
"These are imaginative resources to teach emotional awareness and social competence. They aim to promote communication of feelings, examine a child's own emotions and those of others... There are many suggested activities and themed questions that are ideal for discussion groups. Resources are designed to be multi-sensry with accessible language. A bit different and worth exploring."

The Snivel And Shriek Guide To Sussing Out Your Secondary School' is about tranferring from primary to secondary school... This is a great resource for helping year 6 pupils prepare for the challenges associated with transition. It can be used at home or school."

"I started using 'Feeling Fabulous' with one of my students this AM. She really enjoyed it and her Teaching Assistant asked me about it too so I mentioned your copmany."
Angie Wootten, Specialist
(On a free resource emailed out to Mailing List subscribers): "Fantastic!! What a fab resource, thanks so much, and how lovely to have such a nice surprise in our first week back! I'm telling everyone about your fab resources - I'm using them as an integral part of my work as an ELSA now too! The resources can be used for all children, all ages and all abilities - I even 'borrowed' the very first thing I bought - the 'me / we' spinner thingy for the weekend and used it with my children (9 and 12) in the car - they asked me the questions and read them to each other - brilliant conversation starters and useful to introduce 'random' situations/scenarios without seeming too obvious."
"I love your products and hope to be able to order more once terms starts."
"I purchased and downloaded all your downloadables tonight - Awesome materials!"
