Hi there,

You certainly sound ambitious! I do not have my certification for teaching yoga to children, but I have a 12 year old son diagnosed with all of the issues you mentioned in your post. I would say that what you need the most of is patience! :) Seriously, I know there are books out there written specifically for teaching yoga to disabled kids. I do think they are more along the lines of Downs children though. I have a deck of yoga cards (they show children in various poses that are named after animals) that my son's occupational therapist gave me and they seem to help alot with him. He can only tolerate very small amounts of time and he also needs constant direction and reminders of what pose he is trying to do. Perhaps Aura's child yoga certification has some info on special kids - you could always contact Paul and get his advice. Best of luck to you!
