Five-day Intensive Experiential Workshop for Parents & Caregivers of Special Needs Children

Taught by Anat Baniel

Supported by our Team of ABM Practitioners
With Guest Coach Randy Roberts

For the very first time, in response to requests by parents and caregivers, and following our vision at the Anat Baniel Method Center, we are offering a five-day workshop for caregivers/parents and their child. In this workshop, we will provide caregivers with the tools to help transform the life of the child with challenges.

If your child is between the ages of 5 days old and 17 years old, you may want to consider this workshop if s/he has been diagnosed with:

    ABM Practitioner Neil Sharp with child

  • Autism or on the Spectrum
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Stroke
  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD or ADHD)
  • Genetic Disorders
  • Developmental Delays
  • Other Conditions that affect your child’s learning

Our son was born at 27 weeks and sustained a grade IV bleed in his brain. Doctors told us it was practically certain he would develop cerebral palsy. He started receiving ABM at three months, and today, at five years old, his neurologist is amazed that he has no signs or symptoms of CP. We are so grateful.
—Betsy K.

Anat Baniel works with child with special needsAnat Baniel, from the time she began working with children with special needs, understood that the opportunities for breakthrough improvements for the child with special needs lie in the brain. Over many years of seemingly miraculous outcomes, Anat kept examining what the brain requires and the conditions it needs in order to overcome limitations, often times considered insurmountable.

In this workshop, you will learn about these conditions and the 9 Essentials for Vitality® of the NeuroMovement® approach which Anat has defined. Most importantly you will have the opportunity, with your child in the room with you, for a few hours every day, to learn ways to apply these Essentials in your daily life.

You will experience the NeuroMovement work on yourself. You will enhance your own well-being and will have a deep understanding, on feeling and cognitive levels, of what your child is going through. You will learn ways to help your child become the brilliant learner s/he was born to be. You will be able to help your child to continue to progress beyond his or her limitations. Your own vitality, flexibility, and clarity of thinking will be enhanced, and you will gain powerful awareness and new parenting tools to transform stress, pain, worry, and guilt into greater connection and freedom with your child.

After starting lessons with Marcy and Anat at 15 months of age and continuing for 4 years, my son, Jack, no longer has a diagnosis of autism.—Patty Tobin, mother of Jack, diagnosed with child autism

In this experiential NeuroMovement workshop:
Each child gets one Functional Synthesis (one-on-one) session each day with an experienced ABM Practitioner for a total of 5 lessons.
Each adult gets a total of 2 Functional Synthesis sessions.
One half of each day you will spend with your child with you in the workshop. Anat and her team of practitioners will guide you as to how to specifically apply the Essentials with your child.
The other half of each day, Anat will be teaching the parents and caregivers, preparing you for the next “with your child” half-day.

These half-days will include:
♦ Introduction of the Essentials, the science behind them, and the theory behind the practice
♦ Transformational group movement lessons
♦ One-on-one practice with other participants
♦ Demonstrations on children by Anat Baniel
♦ Q&A sessions

ABM Practitioners working with child with special needsEvery day, during the “Adult” half-day, Randy Roberts will teach “Parenting as Leadership.” She will work with you, providing you with powerful tools and distinctions to further promote your ability to help your child and bring ABM and the Essentials into your daily life.

We expect this workshop to provide intense learning and transformation for the children and the adults that love and care for them.

Space is limited! Please act quickly by filling out the form above to get more information and the full application to this workshop.

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.”
—Michele Shusterman, mother of Lillian age 4
