Breakthrough Approach & Treatment for Children on the Autism Spectrum

A revolution in the area of brain plasticity is currently taking place, with the discovery of the remarkable capacity of the human brain to change itself for the better. The Anat Baniel Method® (ABM) NeuroMovement® is at the forefront of this revolution, helping to make the seemingly impossible possible with thousands of children with special needs, including those on the autism spectrum.

Watch a 21-month-old child diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder make more sense of his world in his first session with Anat Baniel.

With ABM NeuroMovement®, we understand that the job of the brain is to put order in the disorder and  make sense out of the nonsense, i.e., to organize perception, movement, cognition, emotion, and interpersonal relations. The brain of the child on the autism spectrum has great difficulty in doing so.

ABM NeuroMovement®, a science-based approach supported by neuroplasticity (brain change) research, is a breakthrough approach to helping the brain of the child on the autism spectrum to do its job better.

Watch Dr. Michael Merzenich speak about the Anat Baniel Method and why he supports the work and Kids Beyond Limits.

“Scientists have defined the ‘rules’ governing brain plasticity. We now know how to drive brains to change for the better. It has been a great wonder to me, then, that my friend Anat Baniel, working in parallel along a completely different path, has defined almost exactly the same rules.”
~ Dr. Michael Merzenich, PhD, “father” of Neuroplasticity, Author of Soft-Wired, and Winner of 2016 Kavli Prize in Neuroscience

With the 9 Essentials of ABM NeuroMovement, we wake up the brain of the child with ASD, providing it with the information and conditions to thrive and to powerfully transform limitations into often surprising new possibilities.

“The only therapeutic approach we tried with Sawyer besides joining (and we tried many) in which I had any real confidence was the Anat Baniel Method.”
~ William, father of Sawyer (12 year old boy with ASD)

ABM Treatment for Autism in Children—From Fixing to Connecting

The ABM NeuroMovement approach to treatment for autistic children and those on the autism spectrum is very different from traditional approaches. Rather than try to fix the child’s behavior directly, we understand that in order to help the child with ASD, we need to somehow awaken and support the brain’s ability to differentiate and create new connections that will be integrated into effective patterns.

“The approach here, far wiser, far more subtle, truly holistic, far more ingenious, far more in accord with how brain development occurs, shows ways to access the child’s own brain plasticity and yields far greater results, so that the children can spontaneously grow from within.I know because I have observed Baniel’s little patients on multiple visits…”~ Norman Doidge, MD, PhD, Author of The Brain That Changes Itself and The Brain’s Way of Healing

“I think the Anat Baniel Method and Kids Beyond Limits has a great contribution to make to our collective practical efforts to make the best lives possible for children with autism—and other neurodevelopmental disabilities.”
