$18.95Add a review
Anyone who is concerned with the seemingly exponential increase in children manifesting a wide variety of developmental syndromes will rejoice at the appearance of Janet Tubb's truly great book. Janet has worked for over thirty years with children with difficulties ranging from low self-esteem to autism, ADD and more. She has developed her own approach using art, music, and movement - and, when research supports it, nutritional supplements or modifications. Her awareness of children's developmental needs and the effects various artistic therapies can have has its roots in both Waldorf education and conventional therapeutic research and modalities.
Her book is a powerful gift, filled with clear pictures of children with various difficulties, incredibly helpful advice that is amazingly multi-dimensional, and clear instructions for delivering a cornucopia of therapeutic activities and exercises.
Thank you, Janet!
