Looking for a writer with a passion for yoga and kids.
I need an annotated bibliography for research-based (academic) articles relating to yoga and children.
Specifically, articles should be relevant to the benefits of yoga for children dealing with learning disabilities and child disorders (autism, adhd, add, sensory integration, etc.), stress-reduction, learning-enhancement, physical fitness, mental acuity, and general wellness.
I am looking for ACADEMIC articles citing ORIGINAL research or original narratives of specific programs and outcomes. I am NOT interested in summary articles such as [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], etc.
Entries must be in APA style.
Annotations must summarize each article providing a descriptive and evaluative paragraph that informs the reader to the relevance of the article to their research and interest (i.e. How does yoga benefit children). Annotations must be at least 50 words long, not more than 200 words long and should average 75+ words long.
I am NOT looking for cutting and pasting of abstract information, but re-writing and analysis as to the validity of the cited article to the subject. Answer the questions: Why is this of interest? Why should I read this article? What information can I find here?
This information will be posted on my website as a resource for people seeking information on the benefits of yoga for children.
Finished product will be submitted in MS Word format with appropriate hyperlinks to the article on the web. Citations should be organized by subject.
Please quote per citation. I am looking for 50-150 citations (and possibly more) Citations which do not meet the indicated criteria will be rejected and will not be compensated.
Sample is as follows:
Peck, H.L., Kehle, T.J., Bray, M.A., & Theodore, A.L. (2005) Yoga as an intervention for children with attention problems [[url removed, login to view]] , School Pyschology Review, 34, No.3, 415-424.
Looking at yoga as an alternative to increase attention for those with ADHD, ADD and other attention disorders, the authors conducted a study of ten elementary school children on grades 1 to 3. The study looked at the children’s ability to stay on task after following a regimine of yoga two times per week for 30 minutes each session. The results indicted noticeable and sustained increases in measured time on task indicating that yoga can help increase attention.

WHAT IS AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY?
An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 150 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.
ANNOTATIONS VS. ABSTRACTS
Abstracts are the purely descriptive summaries often found at the beginning of scholarly journal articles or in periodical indexes. Annotations are descriptive and critical; they expose the author's point of view, clarity and appropriateness of expression, and authority.
