"Stop and think before you act." That's good advice as far as it goes. But research shows that kids with serious impulse control problems also need to learn to:

  • Accept delayed gratification
  • Read social cues
  • Remember the benefits of impulse control
  • Use positive self-talk
  • Improve problem-solving skills
  • Anticipate consequences
  • Learn how to stop certain behaviors

These are the seven skills taught by this highly effective game. As players make their way through a maze of roads on the colorful game board, they face a series of questions: Should I take the short but hazardous route, or the safe but longer route? What might happen if I exceed the speed limit? Is the easy way the best way? Players must choose their routes carefully and anticipate the consequences of their actions.

Ideal for children with ADD or ADHD, The Impulse Control Game can be played by 2 to 6 players or teams.

Lame and cheap cars

The Impulse Control Game description indicates an age range from 7-12. A more appropriate age range, based on the choices players have to make while playing the game and the vocabulary used on the cards is more like 10-14.
My game arrived without any game pieces, the "cars" or dice. Play Therapy Supply was quick to have the game pieces sent, but I lost a therapy session with a client for whom I had ordered the game. When the pieces arrived, I was disappointed with the lame, cheap "cars" that were made from card stock instead of molded plastic.

Great game! It is a little hard for younger kids to understand, but it's fairly easy to re-word and explain the concepts.
