Children need more than just the 3 R's...
Educating children today requires a new approach - one that effectively meets the physical, mental, and emotional needs of children and the adults who work with them, including parents, school teachers, counselors, nurses, and occupational therapists.
New research shows what we have intuitively known for years: that reducing students’ stress, developing their social/emotional skills, and enhancing their sense of well-being can benefit not only their health but their academic performance.
This handbook distills over 30 years of school teaching, counseling, and yoga experience into a practical, easy-to-teach method that works with a wide range of students, including those with ADD/ADHD, anxiety, and other behavior disorders.
