Yoga for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders- bok av By D.E. Betts and S.W. Betts

Yoga for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders - a step-by-step guide for parents and caregivers
- By Dion E. Betts and Stacey W. Betts

Having successfully used yoga to combat the stress of their own busy lives, Dion and Stacey Betts discovered its potential for their son Joshua, who has Asperger Syndrome.

This fully-illustrated book combines the authors' professional expertise with their experience of parenting, offering a range of gentle and fun yoga positions and breathing techniques that are effective in dealing with the increased levels of anxiety, disorientation and tactile sensitivity often found in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).

The authors give step-by-step descriptions of warming-up, strengthening, calming, and tension-releasing exercises that are suitable for reducing coping mechanisms such as hand-flapping, and increasing muscle tone, muscle strength and body awareness. They also offer a range of short and long sequences that can be tailored to fit the needs of the individual child.

Yoga for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders is ideal for parents and caregivers who want to use simple yoga techniques to help children with ASDs overcome some of the symptoms of the disorder.

"This is a well written and easy to follow guide for parents, caregivers, and even professionals. Providing simple and effective techniques, the book gives hope to families that children with autism spectrum disorders can lead lives feeling less stressed and happier. It provides information about autism spectrum disorders and the right combination of knowledge and sensitivity that makes this a must-have for all of us. The authors recognize that the true teachers are the children; this is what makes it a truly great book.?

"In my 14 years of experience as a speech therapist and eight years of experience as a practicing Certified Yoga Teacher, I have found yoga to be the most effective form of therapy for children with Asperger Syndrome. As a result of using yoga with children with Asperger Syndrome, I have found that these children display increasing overall attention, and greater awareness of their environment as well as increasing overall socialization skills with other children."
