Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book offers one more success story of a parent who refused to believe her disabled child could not be helped. But more importantly, it is a handbook for parents that demonstrates the use of centuries-old yoga practices to benefit the special-needs child. Sumar's program, which she teaches throughout the world, draws on yoga's philosophy that intellect, mobility, and the senses are interdependent and that improved development in one area affects all areas. The book includes a glossary, case reports (including that of Sumar's daughter), and clear, step-by-step instructions with illustrations. It also includes important dos, don'ts, and medical precautions. The success of Sumar's program has been documented in education and psychology journals. An important addition to any special-needs collection.--KellyJo Houtz Griffin, Auburn, WA

    A gentle but effective therepy

    The dicipline of Yoga has so much to offer all children, but especially those with special needs. This book gives simple clear guidance with plenty of illustrations and is easy to folow. I have been doing the programme with my seven year old who has cerebral palsy, and he has made noticable progress with it, in strenghth, control, energy and flexibility. Most important he really enjoys it.
