Announcing a new feature on the OMazing Kids Blog: “Research Roundup”.
This page is dedicated to sharing research & articles relating to kids wellness, including yoga, with a focus on Autism and other special needs.
Articles are listed in order of publication dates with most recent publications listed first.
When available, I am sharing links to full research articles rather than just the “abstract”. Advocates and practitioners are cautioned to read more that just an “abstract” in order to understand research study results because abstracts rarely mention any limitations to the study, they report only key findings, and the brevity of the paragraph (typically 120 words) may tend to provide an overly optimistic read of the study and what was found. For more info about reading & understanding research articles: http://www.uky.edu/CRVAW/files/Understanding%20Scientific%20Journal%20Articles.pdf & http://www.womenshealthapta.org/pdfs/HowToResearchArticle.pdf
It includes a full PDF of the latest research on yoga for kids with Autism:
