Description

This book offers seventeen detailed case studies of children with special needs, dating back to the early twentieth century. The clinical and social background of each child is presented, and their interactions with Rudolf Steiner are described.

Uhlenhoff documents Steiner's recommendations concerning medication, curative eurythmy and other educational therapies and then traces their continuing progress over the coming months and years. The development of each child is described in great detail and with great warmth, with meaningful anecdotes adding colour and depth to the accounts.
