Panicosaurus: Managing Anxiety in Children Including Those with Asperger Syndrome

An essential book for all children. It offers children an insightful look into emotions and what to do when you feel your 'panicosaurus'. For educators and families it arms you with strategies for success. A much loved book for all.”
-Sue Larkey, Autism Spectrum specialist, teacher and author of Making it a Success and Practical Sensory Programmes, New South Wales, Australia

“This book is masterful in its simplicity. It approached the experience of anxiety and its eventual undoing in such a heartfelt, practical and concrete manner that parents and their children will read it and find a cast of characters they will consider their new best friends. Truly wonderful.”
- Brian R. King, clinical social worker, consultant on the autism spectrum and author of Strategies for Building Successful Relationships with People on the Autism Spectrum: Let's Relate

“The Panicosaurus is a delightful book which cleverly explains to children how the brain works to produce anxiety and ways they can manage and take control of their own level of anxiety. The illustrations are great and the storyline and simple analogies used to explain the parts of the brain vying for control of the body are wonderfully suited to the level of young children with Asperger's syndrome. I read this with my six-year-old once and she is already far less afraid of the dark based on her newfound understanding of how the Panicosaurus in her brain works to make her anxious and how she can fight back.”
-Hunter Manasco, Assistant Professor, Department of Speech-Language Pathology, Misericordia University, Pennsylvania and author of An Exceptional Children's Guide to Touch: Teaching Social and Physical Boundaries to Kids
