Worry Board


Standard UK P&P £5

The Worry board can help a person to visualise, and therefore talk about, their worries, thoughts and issues.

Suggested Use

Encourage the person to write the issues that they are concerned with on the blue Gecko tags and then place them in the left hand column on the board.

Talk through each issue and ask the person to place the Gecko tag in one of the circles i.e. is the issue one that the person do “nothing about”, “something about” or an issue “for the future”? Once the person can visualise those things that they can do something about, then you can discuss how they might go about making a visual plan to manage the worry.

In Stock. Normally dispatched next working day.


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 tags off the board and then, separately, place the Gecko tag onto the board.

Materials matter

The Worry 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.
