Testimonials from Doctors and Neuroscientists

dr-michael-merzenich“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 Merzenich, PhD, “Father” of brain plasticity science, Winner of the 2016 Kavli Prize in Neuroscience, and Author of Soft-Wired

jill-bolte-taylor-headshot-cir“Anat applies the exact same principles when helping people overcome limitation that I used to recover my brain and body from stroke. She understands that for any meaningful change to happen in the way we think, move, and use our body, the change has to happen in the brain.”

~Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, PhD, Neuroanatomist, and Bestselling Author of My Stroke of Insight book and TED Talk

norman-doidge-headshot-cir“The approach [ABM NeuroMovement] 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

marthe-herbert-headshot-cir“I think the Anat Baniel Method and Kids Beyond Limits has a great contribution to make to our collective practical efforts to make the best lives possible for children with autism—and other neurodevelopmental disabilities.”

~Dr. Martha Herbert, MD, Neuro-Pediatrician Mass General, PhD, Clinical Psychology, Harvard University, and Author of The Autism Revolution
