Photo Books are simple, hands-on activities that help to reduce children's anticipatory anxiety around new experiences and change. Children love assembling their Photo Books -- and in doing so, prepare themselves to transition to their new school, new home or new experience!
Based on neurodevelopmental principles, these photo albums give children a chance to become familiar with the new faces and places they will see BEFORE that first day. By the time that first day arrives (be it school, a new home or a new destination), new faces and settings will feel more familiar. Right from the start, children will feel calmer and more confident -- essentially ready to take full advantage of what's to come!
There are three types of Photo Books:
"My New School"
"My New Home"
Each keepsake photo album includes specific questions designed to get children talking about the experience as well as suggested activities to help ease their transition.
