"The new edition contains many pearls and practical suggestions, and includes a wealth of information designed to prepare the child for an active and fit lifestyle. The reader can easily find the section that characterizes a child's current level of motor abilities and follow the suggested activities. This is a book to read again and again, a few pages at a time or from cover to cover."

"Pat Winders has written yet another useful resource for parents and professionals. The 2nd edition provides explanations of essential gross motor skills children with Down syndrome need for optimal movement. Thank you for developing a resource that parents and professionals can continue to use to facilitate functional movement for children with Down syndrome. We will continue to share this valuable resource with our families in the Down Syndrome Center of Western Pennsylvania."

A review in Spanish by Dr. Jesús Flórez ...
"Deberá ir mostrando cómo desarrollar las habilidades motoras que necesitará cuando llegue a ser adolescente y adulto. Habrá de responder a vuestras preguntas sobre qué enseñar, por qué, cuándo y cómo habréis de ir enseñándole. Os proporcionará las herramientas necesarias para comprenderle y para interpretar sus manifestaciones, y también os dará métodos para ir practicando estas habilidades."
