"My son has CP with right sided hemiparesis. Early intervention services were good but I knew there had to be more available to him. I discovered Anat Baniel Method/Feldenkrais through online parent groups and decided to give it a try. He has improved so much! With Tara's help he went from being able to only lie and roll occasionally to pull himself up and cruise along my furniture. His whole world and perspective has changed! I am so glad to have found ABM and especially Tara who is a kind, caring, and wonderful practitioner."

Anat Baniel Method for Children and Feldenkrais can help with a wide spectrum of challenges, from minor motor delays to the effects of severe brain injury.

 

It can also help children who are simply behind their peers in fine or gross motor skills or who are experiencing balance, coordination. or sensory issues.

On behalf of children with minor difficulties:

 

All children grow and develop at different speeds. For some parents, it is a challenge to know whether or not to seek help for their child.

 

If that describes you, please consider this question:

 

What could these people have in common?

 

1.  a child who "skips" crawling,

2.  a child who finds it difficult to walk down stairs,

3.  a teenager who avoids sports and

4.  an adult who hates to exercise and struggles with neck and back pain.

 

Answer: they are all the same person.

 

Each person has a different trajectory through life, and there are many, many places where a person can learn and change.  How about helping your child now?

 

Shifting something simple, like how easy it is to hold a pencil, or how fun it is to run, can open a world of options to your child.

 

If your infant is experiencing minor developmental delays, or if your child struggles with their coordination, balance, motor skills or dexterity, a short series of sessions could have lifelong benefits.
