Read what Michael Merzenich, PhD, Neuroscientist, and author of Soft-Wired, and Norman Doidge, MD, author of The Brain’s Way of Healing have written about Anat Baniel’s work with children with special needs.

Help For Children With Special Needs:
A New NeuroMovement Approach

Anyone who loves a child with special needs wants to help that child grow and develop past their present limitations. The Anat Baniel Method® is a science-based, breakthrough approach that focuses on the child’s brain and its remarkable abilities to change and learn. The method’s gentle movements and ABM’s Nine Essentials are powerful tools that provide transformational help for children with special needs to overcome their limitations.

With this gentle approach we do not focus on the child’s limitations. Rather than try to force children into developmental milestones they are not ready to do successfully, which can groove in their limitations even deeper, the method wakes up the child’s brain to create new connections, often at a staggering rate, leading to spontaneous, often extraordinary breakthroughs in movement, thinking, self-regulation, and connection with others.
