'By following Joel's expert advice, children with ASD's will learn how to replace their emotional flip switch with a more disciplined dimmer switch. Now that would certainly be something to feel better about!' - K.I. AL-Ghani, Specialist Advisory Teacher, University Lecturer, Autism Trainer and international author of books on ASD

'Joel's newest book presents readers with fantastic visuals that provide an accessible approach to the physical and emotional stages of regulation, but more importantly, it also includes practical strategies that allow for children to feel in control throughout their day.' - Lauren Brukner, Occupational Therapist, and author of The Awesome and In Control Series

'I love the way that the author keeps language simple and incorporates visuals for each explanation. The accessible layout will make it possible to navigate even on a worst, most anxious day. Images may even be stored and collated in memory and associated with situations as they arise. I love the use of examples of others who might experience the same things and the way key questions allow an opportunity for self reflection, discussion and awareness. This book is a brilliant concept and I'm certain it will be a really useful resource.' - Adele Devine - Author, Special Needs teacher and Co Founder of the Multi award winning SEN Assist autism software.
