Thirty years ago, when Janet Tubbs began working with children who had low self-esteem and behaviour problems, she developed a successful programme using art, music and movement. Believing that unconventional children required unconventional therapies, she then took her programme one step further - she applied it to children with Autism, AD/HD and Asperger's Syndrome.

Her innovative methods and strategies not only worked, but actually defied the experts. In this new book, Janet Tubbs has put together a powerful teaching tool to help parents, therapists and teachers work with their children. The book is divided into four parts.

Part One begins by introducing and explaining Janet's novel approach to teaching. Her goal is to balance the child's body, mind, and spirit through proven techniques. The next three parts provide a wide variety of exercises, activities and games that are both fun and effective. Each is designed to reduce hyperactivity, increase and prolong focus, decrease anger, develop fine motor skills or improve social and verbal skills. All are part of a programme created to help these children relate to their environment without fear, anxiety or discomfort.

Just because a child may appear stubborn and difficult, doesn't mean that the child isn't intelligent, curious or creative. With the right approach, such a child can be reached, taught and, hopefully, started on the road to improvement. The daily lessons provided in this book may be just what you and your child have been waiting for.
