Description

The Anxiety Assessment board can help someone to process their anxieties and analyse those that they can do nothing about, those for the future and those that they can do something about.

Many people are able to manage their own thoughts, emotions and behaviours, others are not and will benefit from professional support and visual tools that supplement their own cognitive functioning. At OurBoards we believe, passionately, that using external visual tools to support executive functioning is not a sign a weakness or failure but simply a different way of processing information. The Anxiety Assessment Board that we offer is for use by an individual with support from a mental health professional, teacher or parent. We intend that it will used by an individual, with support, rather than “done to” them.

The OurBoards Behaviour and Anxiety Intervention Tools have been designed in partnership with Andrew Whitehouse of People First Education.

How to use

Visual and kinaesthetic thinking

The boards are designed to support people who struggle with executive thinking. We suggest that the process of using the boards is as visual and kinaesthetic as possible. When there is something to write, then suggest the person writes it on one of the Gecko Notes or Tags off the board and then, separately, place the Gecko Note onto the board. Allow the person to choose colours of the Gecko Notes for the different tasks and steps to be done. Discuss their choice of colour.

Suggested Use

Suggest the person write the issues that they are concerned with on the blue Gecko tags and then place them in the left column on the board. Talk through each issue and then place it in one of the circles i.e. is the issue a concern, something the person can influence or something that is important but for the future. Once the person can visualise those things that they can influence, it may be helpful to move on to the “How would I?” board.

Materials matter

The Anxiety Assessment Board is manufactured as a sandwich consisting of a strong lightweight expanded foam base with a dry wipe laminate surface that enables you to write and wipe time and time again. Boards and accessories are suitable for use with most dry wipe pens.

“Gecko” laminate is so called because it is based on technology that mimics the tiny pads on a Gecko’s foot. “Gecko” laminate is an amazing new material, unique to OurBoards, that sticks to most smooth surfaces, such as laminated surfaces, wood, glass, whiteboards and smooth painted walls. Only dry wipe pens and cleaning sprays should be used.

Features:

  • Size A3 (approx 42cm x  30cm)
  • Printed dry wipe board with laminated surface
  • Accessories included are:
    • 10 x Blue Gecko Tags
