    Hi
    I saw a really good chart on Pintrest, that said it was from Elsa Support, it is red, yellow and green with When I feel, I need to use my tools, Then I will feel.. with my Coping Tools along the side, please can I buy this resource for an autistic lad I work with at Rivermead School – it looks fab. Many thanks Natalie

      Hi Kerry,

      There is a lesson plan on the site about night time https://www.elsa-support.co.uk/lesson-plans-for-groups-and-whole-classes/
      Dreamcatchers are fab to make and also worry dolls. They can put the doll under their pillow to help them sleep through the night. Also if you look at the Relax Kids website there are some fab CDs for listening to before going to sleep. Makes the child very relaxed. Also look at the relaxation cards on the site https://www.elsa-support.co.uk/relaxationcalming-activities-children/

    I saw a child friendly version of the Pupil score sheet on facebook but I can’t find it anywhere on the elsa support website.
