Special needs workshop held Friday

A movement workshop for children with developmental disabilities, autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and brain damage will be held Friday in Nevada City.

The workshop will help develop and optimize balance, flexibility, coordination and movement skills. Parents will learn how to continue the movements with their children at home.

The workshop will be conducted by Jackie Mason, a movement specialist working with special needs children 3 to 13 years old. Her technique provides an option along with physical, occupational, speech and other therapies to increase the possibility of disabled children becoming more independent later in life.

The workshop will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Friday at Core Movement, 578 Searls Ave., next to Wild Mountain Yoga in Nevada City. Cost is $40 per child. Reserve a space 478-9547; for more information, visit http://www.DesignedforMovement.com.
