Max and Me
Max and Me tells the story of a child’s first days at school. Each day gets harder for him as he struggles to cope with the noise, lights and activities of a busy school day. One day he has had enough. “I hate school, I don’t want to go back!” That’s when his mum tells him about Max – his modulator.
The story offers an explanation of how sensory information is processed using the analogy of a ‘modulator’, who living in the brain has the job of receiving messages from the senses and then deciding the best thing for the body to do. Once he gets to know his modulator and how to work together with him, things start to go better for him . . . that is until Max falls asleep!
Max and Me is a resource for therapists, teachers, SENCO’s, parents and children. The workbook format is designed to allow children to reflect on the story and working together with an adult, get to know their own ‘modulator’.
