Children with Special Needs
The Anat Baniel Method℠ (ABM) is a science-based, breakthrough approach that uses gentle movements and the ABM’s Nine Essentials to communicate with a child’s brain and its amazing capacity to learn and change. This method focuses on each child’s ability to learn, an ability present in all children no matter their special needs, and overcome their limitations.
Rather than focusing on what a child can’t do, we build upon what they can do. Forcing a child into developmental milestones they are not ready perform can groove in their limitations even deeper. Through gentle movements, the ABM wakes up the child’s brain to make new neural connections resulting in breakthroughs in movement as well as thinking, self-regulation and connection with others. Children love to learn and find these gentle movements presenting them with new possibilities and freedom very pleasurable.
This method has proven effective with a variety of challenges including Cerebral Palsy, Genetic Disorders, Stroke & Brain Injury, Undiagnosed Developmental Delays, Birth Defects, Autism, ADD/ADHD and a range of others.
