This book offers one more success story of a parent who refused to believe her disabled child could not be helped. But more importantly, it is a handbook for parents that demonstrates the use of centuries-old yoga practices to benefit the special-needs child. Sumar's program, which she teaches throughout the world, draws on yoga's philosophy that intellect, mobility, and the senses are interdependent and that improved development in one area affects all areas. The book includes a glossary, case reports (including that of Sumar's daughter), and clear, step-by-step instructions with illustrations. It also includes important dos, don'ts, and medical precautions. The success of Sumar's program has been documented in education and psychology journals. An important addition to any special-needs collection.?KellyJo Houtz Griffin, Auburn, WA
