Healthy Alternatives – USING BOAT BUILDING TO HELP KIDS AT RISK

Join me and my guest, Cecilia Koester, as we talk about how she got into using boat building as a way to work with youth that are at risk (www.movementbasedlearning.com.

Cecilia Koester has been a special education teacher for over thirty years. She has authored two books, I Am The Child: Using Brain Gym With Children Who Have Special Needs and Movement Based Learning For Children of All Abilities. After leaving the classroom she opened a school for boat building for Youth at Risk. She’s going to share how this changed these kids lives.

Cecilia currently runs a course called Brain Gym® for Special Needs Providers that teaches parents, teachers and therapists how to use movement with children who have special needs. You’re not going to want to miss this one!
