Description
Kurtz, a pediatric occupational therapist gives parents reasons to consider complementary and alternative medicine approaches in the treatment of special needs children, then describe such alternative medical systems as acupuncture and acupressure, ayurveda, homeopathy, naturopathy and osteopathy. She lists and describes mind-body interventions such as aromatherapy and animal-assisted therapy, commercially-available therapies, sign language and video modeling, then describes biologically based interventions, manipulative and body-based methods such as massage and reflexology. With each entry she details how the therapy or intervention relates to learning disabilities and concludes with lists of resources, including recommended reading.
