Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As the parents of a child with Asperger syndrome, special education administrator Dion E. Betts (coauthor, Homespun Remedies: Strategies in the Home and Community for Children with Autism Spectrum and Other Disorders) and yoga practitioner Stacey W. Betts are sensitive to the needs of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Here they explain how yoga can be beneficial to such children through a series of illustrated, easy-to-follow yoga poses and breathing techniques. They introduce warm-up, strengthening, tension-releasing, and calming poses; two short sequences for lighter days; and four breathing techniques. Photos present two levels of a pose, and imagery is employed metaphorically as well, to help the child better understand a pose (e.g., one must be strong in the bridge pose to hold up the cars and trucks that roll over a bridge). This book, which can be used by parents wanting to introduce their children to yoga, shows how stress and anxiety can be lessened in both parties through patience and hands-on interaction. Recommended for all libraries.-Dede Fellrath-Archer, Naples, FL Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Nice book

    I've been looking for ways of helping my grandson without the use of medication. The book is easy to use. I don't know much about yoga, but the pictures and explanations guide you through simple poses and breathing exercises. I like the book and my grandson likes to do the poses.
