I Am the Child
This book is the story of eleven children who have complex developmental needs.
Over a two year period, Koester journaled her experiences as a teacher in a public school classroom, drawing out the gifts of these children.
The result is this remarkable book which invites the reader into a unique world of the child who has multiple challenges. This book offers a simple, commonsense approach to the fulfilment of sensory and perceptual needs through the activities known as Brain Gym®. The author shares with us an authentic story of the human spirit––one filled with joy, frustration, compassion, and growth and the adaptations of the Brain Gym method that she used successfully to meet the needs of eleven children who have multiple challenges which include deafness, blindness, cerebral palsy, Angelman's Syndrome, mental retardation and autism.
