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 fulfillment 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.
