Anat Baniel Method®NeuroMovement for Children with Special Needs
Children Are Amazing Learning Machines, they depend 100% on learning for everything they’ll ever be able to do. And learning occurs in the brain. The brain’s job is to create billions upon billions of new connections and organize them into coherent and effective patterns of movement, thought, emotion, feeling, and action.
This is true for all children, whether they have special needs or not. What we have discovered with Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® is that no matter the enormity of your child’s challenges, your child’s brain almost always can change for the better in ways that often seem miraculous.
The brain can almost always find creative new solutions to form new neural connections that help kids move past their limitations and experience new possibilities. NeuroMovement helps your child’s brain become a changing, learning, and brilliant brain, forming new, more effective patterns of movement, cognition, feeling, and emotion. Helping children with:
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Brain Injury and Stroke
Birth Defects and Other Conditions (i.e. Brachial plexus injury, torticollis, and other birth defects)
Undiagnosed Developmental Delays
What Can You Expect?
With Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®, we always work with your child where he or she is at the present time. Our approach is very gentle, using movements and the 9 Essentials that help your child’s brain to wake up and grow, learn, and evolve. We do not focus on trying to have your child accomplish a specific developmental milestone at a given time. We believe that every child develops at his or her own rate through an individual and unique path.
When you bring your child to see a NeuroMovement® Practitioner, what you can expect is for your child to begin changing almost immediately.
You can expect us to guide you in seeing the changes and what they mean. You can expect your child to become a learner, and often a brilliant learner over time. You can expect your child to continuously improve how she or he moves, thinks, feels, and interacts with others.
How to Prepare for Your Visit
Before you start with the ABM NeuroMovement sessions, we strongly encourage parents to learn about the Nine Essentials. Reading Anat Baniel’s book Kids Beyond Limits is a great place to start!
We’d like you to begin using the Essentials with your child as soon as possible. Learn more about NeuroMovement and the 9 Essentials here.
In addition, we encourage parents to experience the work themselves to better understand what their child is experiencing. And also take advantage of our Online coaching program.
We work with the children in what we call “intensives.” - 2 or 3 sessions per day over consecutive days.
We have a collaborative team approach, which we have found to be extremely effective. Your child will work with both Terry and Antoinette.
We offer the following formats:
2 x 45 minute sessions per day for 5 consecutive days - total of 10 sessions - R7000
3 x 30 minute sessions per day for 3 consecutive days - total of 9 sessions - R6500
3 x 30 minute sessions per day for 4 consecutive days - total of 12 sessions - R7500
