Overview
Super Sense teaches students fun and easy ways to stay in control of their inattentiveness, repetitive or socially inappropriate behavior - including breathing techniques, pressure holds, implementing fine motor movements and much more.
Description
Mark and his friends find themselves experiencing feelings that at times are indescribable when at school. Good thing their superhero friend SUPER SENSE is always near with strategies and tools to help them feel better inside. Because when they feel better inside it shows on the outside. You may not see Super Sense in the classroom or on the playground but when Mark and his classmates start having funny feelings inside, concentrating becomes too difficult, or when their hands or body starts to rock or shake, just like that Super Sense appears. Super Sense guides each classmate step-by-step, showing them what they can do to increase their attention and decrease repetitive or socially inappropriate behavior. Remember there is no need to fear because SUPER SENSE is always near.
