Story of Elise: A Baby Who Suffered a Stroke
“Elise suffered a stroke shortly after birth and was unable to speak, use her left hand, or walk until she began getting lessons in Anat Baniel Method [NeuroMovement].
Today Elise sang part of the ‘I Love You’ song from Barney for the very first time. Pretty incredible considering that 4 months ago she only uttered vowels.
She lifted and opened her hamper with her left (previously paralyzed) hand and placed her clothing in the hamper with her right hand. She couldn’t do any of that one month ago.
She is now sliding down short slides sitting upright and centered. We’re getting there!”
—Heather, Mother of Elise
