The Story of Avery

Avery Morrell was born via an emergency C-section, and due to lack of oxygen, she suffered hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. As a result, Avery was diagnosed with global brain damage.

Doctors told Katie Morrell, Avery’s mom, that she would likely not walk or develop other basic functions normally.

However, Katie was not willing to accept that prognosis for Avery and believed that there was more that she could do to help her daughter.

Katie discovered the Anat Baniel Method (ABM) NeuroMovement®, and began traveling with Avery to California to the Anat Baniel Method Center to receive ABM Lessons.

“Each time, Avery just made massive jumps,” Katie said.

This young girl with brain damage learned to crawl, walk, and speak. And now, she is learning to dance.

In fact, they are getting ready for Avery’s first dance recital on May 14.

Katie shares: “She cannot do all the moves, but she is joyful and loves it….Avery’s just blossomed and she continues to just grow every single day and learn more and more.”

Katie Morrell was so inspired by the transformational changes she saw in Avery that she decided to become an ABM NeuroMovement Practitioner herself. For more information, contact Katie at kmorrell73@gmail.com.

Katie, along with several other practitioners, are planning to open a new NeuroMovement Center at 818 W. South Boulder Rd., Suite 200 in Louisville, Colorado, on August 1. Contact Barbara Horwitch at 303-579-0453 or email her at barbara@boulderneurowellness.com to find out more.
