Anat Baniel and her team of practitioners will be coming to a city near you with their experiential workshop NeuroMovement® for Children with Special Needs.
From the time Anat Baniel began working with children with special needs over 30 years ago, she understood that the opportunities for breakthrough improvements for the child with special needs lie in the brain.
Anat Baniel’s work with Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais, along with her many years of experience with a wide variety of clients, both children and adults, is what led her to develop the NeuroMovement® approach of the Anat Baniel Method℠.
Baniel states: “This NeuroMovement approach helps all people maximize their potential, no matter what their diagnosis.”
It uses innovative, gentle movement exercises and the Nine Essentials to help any child who has been diagnosed with autism, Asperger syndrome, attention deficit disorder, ADHD, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, developmental delays, or other conditions.
Baniel has defined the Nine Essentials that are required to drive powerful, positive brain change, often leading to the “impossible” becoming possible for many of these children.
Dr. Michael Merzenich, a neuroscientist and world authority on brain plasticity, wrote about Baniel’s work, “From several decades of research… we scientists have defined the ‘rules’ governing brain plasticity in neurological terms. 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. Norman Doidge, MD, bestselling author of The Brain That Changes Itself and The Brain’s Way of Healing, wrote, “This accessible, insightful, practical method for parents of children with special needs will profoundly deepen their ability to help their children improve… Baniel shows why our mainstream approach to these children is often wrong, and at times damaging, because they train children to ‘ape’ developmental milestones they are not developmentally ready to meet. 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, and time after time, I have seen children whose parents were told their brain-damaged children would never walk, or talk, or be able to think well or regulate themselves, begin to do just that with this gentle technique.”
In this workshop, participants will learn about the Nine Essentials and the NeuroMovement practices they can use in daily life with their child. They’ll experience firsthand the remarkable capacity of the brain to change.
They’ll learn how to reduce their child’s stress, pain and limitation, and increase everyone’s well-being and joy as their child begins to improve in new ways. Professionals will learn techniques for breakthrough outcomes with their clients.
Michele Shusterman, who has used this Method, affirms, “It is my hope that someday all special needs children and their parents will have access to this work and its benefits. The Anat Baniel Method has not only transformed my daughter, but our entire family.”
