Sensory Yoga for Kids : Therapeutic Movement for Children of all Abilities
Illustrates how to use yoga to bring calm and focus (and exercise!) to children with special needs. Childhood is a time filled with new motor challenges and hurdles; and this is doubly true for kids with autism and other special needs. The motor challenges children face require strength, coordination, and the ability to focus and attend. Yoga can help children with these challenges as it can strengthen their bodies while calming. This book demonstrates how to get children started with the discipline that so many of us use in our daily lives. Occupational therapist Britt Collins tells how to use yoga to support special needs, increasing body awareness and fine tune coordination skills.
