Providing innovative resources for children with special needs is one of our passions here at Educational Esteem. Here’s a selection of some of the best collections.

Fittersitters is a specialised 30-minute exercise program for people with limited ability to stand or those who need to “get fit while you sit”. The CD features warm-ups, vigorous exercises and cool downs that help improve range of motion, body spatial orientation and general well being. Appropriate for children aged five-plus right up to older people and especially for children with complex special physical needs.

More Songs About Me features eleven songs focus on a child’s ‘me’ world and can be used with one child or entire group. Music therapist Bill Janiak has a clear, simple and repetitive style to help children with special needs explore and improve skills like body part identification, motor and language development, counting, listening and emotional awareness. Janiak has been an early childhood specialist and music therapist of over 40 years. He specialises in movement recordings and his philosophy is ‘we learn by doing’.
