Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® Helps a Boy with Cortical Vision Impairment

Shared by Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® Practitioner Mike Davis

cortical vision impairment - PaulyI was recently in Ohio visiting my family and giving Anat Baniel Method (ABM) NeuroMovement lessons to children. I had 26 appointments with families from Canton to Cincinnati!

While I was there, I worked with a little boy named Pauly. He is 2-years-old, is tube-fed, has global developmental delay, cortical vision impairment (CVI), and cerebral palsy.

I also believe Pauly has Athetoid cerebral palsy, but it has not been officially diagnosed.

I had a wonderful time working with Pauly and I found him to be one smart and alert little boy!

After returning from my trip, I received several messages and photos from Pauly’s mom. I would like to share these with you.

Here is the message from Andrea, Pauly’s mom:

Hi Mike!

First, right off the bat, I can’t even tell you how fantastic his eyes look. I took some pictures of him today and for the first time ever both of his eyes are straight!! I thought they were looking better but the camera confirmed it for me!!!  His irritability is decreased … He has just been so much happier!

I started switching him to the blenderized diet and he is handling it great! I am really hopeful that I will be able to get him off that formula and onto real food (even if it is through his tube)!

You can definitely use pictures of Pauly!  I will send more.  Please let us know when you are coming back to town! We would love for Paul to see you again!

Thanks for everything!


Below are a couple more beautiful photos of Pauly and Mike doing ABM NeuroMovement® Lessons…

I am sending you these photos for comparison … this is Paul eating birthday cake tonight (he is 2)!!

I took 5-6 pictures of him and his eyes look like this in every one of them!

Thank you, Andrea, for sharing these photos and this story about Pauly with us.

Best wishes to you and your family!
