Some children understand the importance of self control and respect for others.
Some children are active but are still able to recognise when its time to calm down. Other children find it difficult to settle themselves and are unable to recognise when their behaviour is affecting those around them.
This inability may be due to poor boundaries, poor self management or due to more serious issues i.e. ADHD or Bipolar Affective Disorder.
Speedy and his friends helps the ‘busy child’ to understand the importance of self control and respect for others. It assists children in learning the skills needed to function in social setting and to accept the possible need for medication at times.
‘Speedy and His Friends’ also gives those children affected by the ‘busy child’ an opportunity to have their feelings validated and to get insight into what the busy child feels.
