What is ABM?

Author on neuroplasticity, Dr. Norman Doidge, says about ABM, “I have seen children whose parents were told their brain-damaged children would never walk, or talk, or be able to think well or regulate themselves, begin to do just that with this gentle technique. I have seen the peace on the faces of these children as their minds and plastic brains suddenly begin to integrate what they have learned for the first time, the explosion of joy at their first steps and watched them grow and become more independent.”

My name is Gilbran Chong, and I am a certified ABM practitioner. I am passionate about serving children with special needs and their parents. I understand how devastating it is for children and their families to struggle through every single day. The love and sacrifice a parent makes for a special needs child is overwhelming, and ABM is the most powerful tool I’ve ever found to support transformation for both you and your child.

With this gentle approach, I do not focus on your child’s limitations. Rather than try to force your child into developmental milestones they are not ready to do successfully - which can exaggerate their feeling of limitation - I help wake up your 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.
