The Anat Baniel Method® of NeuroMovement® for Children with special needs


Does your child struggle with learning? Has your child been diagnosed with autism, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, attention deficit disorder (ADD) or ADHD, or have some other condition that interferes with her or his learning? Do you want to maximize your child’s learning and development?



Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® is a science-based, breakthrough approach that focuses on the child’s brain and its remarkable abilities to change and learn. The method’s gentle movements and ABM’s Nine Essentials are powerful tools that provide transformational help for children with special needs to overcome their limitations.


Children with the following Conditions have benefited from ABM:

  • autism
  • cerebral palsy
  • stroke
  • attention deficit disorder (ADD or ADHD)
  • genetic disorders
  • developmental delays
  • other conditions that affect your child’s learning


With this gentle approach we do not focus on the child’s limitations. Rather than try to force children into developmental milestones they are not ready to do successfully, which can groove in their limitations even deeper, the method wakes up the child’s brain to create new connections, often at a staggering rate, leading to spontaneous, often extraordinary breakthroughs in movement, thinking, self-regulation, and connection with others.


The Anat Baniel Method®, an evolution of the work of Dr Moshe Feldenkrais, uses the brains powerful capacity to change and improve.



The brain is an information system and controls the way we organize our movements. Everything we do, think and experience changes the neural pathways or connections in our brains. The tendency with aging, disability and trauma is for those changes to result in reduced coordination, increased rigidity and pain. The Anat Baniel Method® uses principles of neuroplasticity that are known to bring about positive changes in the brain resulting in increased vitality, creativity. With this method we don’t try to change behavior, but we help upgrade the functioning of the brain itself to become a more skilled brain. With a better, stronger brain, positive changes occur in all aspects that otherwise may not be possible, both for adults and for children.
