Great program, but book needs updating and better organization

The program itself is great and I've used it with many kiddos who have benefitted from the application of the concepts. However, it is a pretty steep price for a book that is cheaply manufactured, poor quality printing, and has outdated/clipart pictures. It would be worth the investment for the company to re-boot this program with an updated look. Additionally, I found the book's conceptual layout to be illogical at times. It could be hard to follow the sequence of information at times. I found myself making my own outline and instructions to teach my other therapists so that I could go over it with them in a more logical and easy to learn format. I still give it 4 stars because the actual concept, once you sift through and get it, is a great framework for teaching self regulation.
Best Self Regulation Program Out There!

I do not have a single negative thing to say about this program. It works fantastic even with really tough kids. This book also includes a ton of really fun activities to practice the program. I do recommend ordering the cd with the songs on as well. This program will change your child/students/patients lives. I would also recommend this product to regular education teachers. When I was a teacher I used it in my class and it makes a big difference when the students can regulate themselves. I highly recommend this product!!!

I read this book many years ago and the special education teacher asked me if she could take the book home and start implementing your ideas!
Overrated, and simplistic

This book is very, very expensive for a very simplistic view on the issue. I wish things were as easy as "suck on my pencil when I'm feeling anxious" but they are far from it. We are much more complex and way deeper than it may seem from this book. For some reason when I was reading this book's description, I was led to believe that it was more comprehensive, that the material was exciting - but it wasn't. After reading it, I felt empty, and I had more questions than I had answers. Good thing, that I bought also No More Meltdowns by Jed Baker, and that book was an amazing source of answers that touch beyond physical. One thing one must agree that understanding of "How your engine runs" is a clever title, very marketable indeed, with some grain of truth in it - one must understand how their body functions and be aware, and prepared, to deal with "engine overheating" when that happens. However the book does a poor job describing patterns and psychological factors, instead concentrating on oversimplified and "self explanatory" physical ones. One feels like its almost an insult to your intelligence, that preparations you need to make in order to deal with your engine overheat are just NOT ENOUGH. In my opinion a parent needs to understand the patterns behind the overheatings to prevent them, and connect to their child on a more deeper level. But being prepared is the key, and working together with the child is the key...perhaps this book was written for 3 year old kids, but not kids who go to school? I am still scratching my head over this book, it's not what I expected from it.
It is worked out very practically and beautiful, but some things should be updated

We bought the book to implement the program in a group with kids who have features from ASD and/or ADHD in a rural area. It is worked out very practically and beautiful, but some things should be updated, especially some of the working sheets.
