    This excellent handbook (...) is written by a teacher in special education who is also a yoga practitioner and teacher... All in all, any child who learns what the author offers herein will develop greater concentration and focus, increased strength and flexibility of body and mind and become a calmer, happier person: life-long benefits any adult would wish to bestow on those in their care, whether or not they have special needs. Highly recommended for use at home or school and in particular, for those with special needs.
