More About Treatment for Autism in Children with the Anat Baniel MethodIt is estimated that one in 100 children is on the autism spectrum. The diagnosis is mostly based on the observation of repetitive, restricted and stereotypical patterns of behavior and on impairments in communication skills and in social interactions.
With the Anat Baniel Method we see the compulsiveness and rigidity that these kids exhibit, coupled with their difficulty to relate, to transition and their often compromised coordination and poor organization of movement, as a manifestation of their brain’s inability to differentiate and form patterns like those in healthy brains.
Movement is the language of the brain. Movement communicates with the brain, providing it with the necessary information it requires to form and organize itself, and in turn, through its experiences, to learn to organize the movements of the body, of thinking, of feeling, of emotion, and of all action. To understand more about these ideas, we recommend reading Kids Beyond Limits.When we work with a child on the autism spectrum, rather than try to make him do what he would have been doing had he not had this condition, which frequently leads to limited results, we use movement with attention and the other Nine Essentials to communicate with the child’s brain, helping it heal. As a result the child begins connecting more fully with himself, with his body and with what he feels, awakening his attention and his ability to make sense of himself and the world around him.You can learn more about how the method works by doing Anat’s workshop for parents of special needs kidsMore @ http://www.anatbanielmethod.com/children/austism-spectrum-disorder
