What Our Family Thought:

I was given this book by a friend whose children are seeing Anna Buck for neuro-developmental delay therapy. This family has seen a child exhibit two years worth of progress in six month’s time. I found it to be a quick, easy read. Miracle Children contains mostly anecdotal evidence, case histories, and explanations of the therapy and why it works rather than scientific or empirical evidence. This makes it a good book for parents to explore another treatment option in a readable and easily accessible way, but if one desires more science and proof, she references books by Sally Goddard (Reflexes, Learning And Behavior: A Window into the Child’s Mind: A Non-Invasive Approach to Solving Learning & Behavior Problemsand Sally Goddard Blythe (The Well Balanced Child: Movement and Early Learning), which appear to be a bit more scientific. I am going to be looking more into this type of therapy.
