The Anat Baniel Method for Children has helped thousands of children with special needs by using its cutting edge, neuro-scientific approach. Through ABM, the practitioner communicates with the child’s brain through specific and intentional hands-on movements. This “dialogue” results in the formation of new neural patterns and pathways, achieving higher levels of development than had previously been possible. As the child’s brain functions better and better, there are significant and continuous improvements in movement, speech, cognitive ability, intention, sleep and feeding. A whole new world is possible for the child!
