It is no easy task to find a teaching technique that can truly change the course of a child with special needs. Thirty years ago, when Janet Tubbs began working with children who had low self-esteem and behavioral problems, she developed a successful program using art, music, and movement. Believing that unconventional children required unconventional therapies, she then took her program 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. Janet Tubbs has put together a powerful teaching tool to help parents, therapists, and teachers work with their children. 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.
