What People Are Saying

“This accessible, insightful, and practical approach for parents of children with special needs (and professionals) will profoundly deepen their ability to help their children improve. Baniel shows why our mainstream approach is often wrong and at times damaging. The approach (Anat Baniel Method) here, far wiser, far more subtle, truly holistic, far more ingenious, far more in accord with how brain development occurs, shows ways to access brain plasticity and yields far greater results.”
Norman Doidge, MD, author of The Brain That Changes Itself and The Brain’s Way of Healing

“Scientists have defined the “rules” governing brain plasticity. Anat Baniel, working in parallel along a completely different path, has defined almost exactly the same rules and interprets them in practical and understandable human terms as the Nine Essentials that should contribute richly to clinical intervention.”
Dr. Michael Mezenich, author of Soft-Wired and “father” of brain plasticity science

“This wonderful book illustrates how to engage the miraculous capacities of the brain to change and heal.”
Harvey Karp, MD, creator of the DVD/book The Happiest Toddler on the Block

“Kids Beyond Limits gives parents and others who care for special children new hope and a new sense of possibilities.”
Arianna Huffington, Huffington Post

“I have observed Anat’s work with severely challenged individuals over a period of more than two decades, and have witnessed transformations that are simply stunning. My hope is that the Anat Baniel Method will reach the greatest possible audience and that it will become a part of academic teaching, training and research programs in rehabilitation medicine and in physical therapy, and the sooner, the better.”
Dr. Daniel Graupe, University of Illinois, Chicago

“Anat’s work with children is magical. She’s their brain whisperer. This hugely important work will free special needs children and their parents from fear and limitation moving them into a world of new possibilities and joy.”
John Gray, author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus

“Anat’s work is wonderful and profound. Kids Beyond Limits does a masterful job of helping parents and caregivers help the special child in their lives. This is a book of great wisdom as well as deep appreciation for the great challenges of raising a child who has special needs.”
—Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul

Anat Baniel’s work is also supported by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, author of My Stroke of Insight; Dr. Martha Herbert, author of The Autism Revolution; Dr. Mark Waldman, author of Why We Believe What We Believe; and many others.
