Working With Your Child

Based in Cumbria, I  am a practitioner of NeuroMovement™ (Anat Baniel Method®) and I use gentle, innovative movements and techniques to help the brain of a special needs child, as well as typically developing child, form new neural connections and patterns that take them beyond their current limitations.

While it is an ongoing process, you can expect to see some change within the first 4-6 lessons. Changes can be very subtle and at times dramatic.

Anat Baniel Method with Rezwana Patterson for Children with Special Needs
A Child’s brain with brain injury, autism, CP, genetic disorders etc. can heal, grow and develop given the right conditions
That is where I step in; my son was born with mild Cerebral Palsy and development delay.
I read Norman Boldge’s book, ‘The Brain that healed itself’, through this I discovered brain plasticity and its workings.

What exactly is Brain Plasticity?
A child with special needs results in the brain nerve (neural) connection fire off in a disorganised way.
Anat Baniel methods allow for gentle, organized movements to remap and feed the brain with developmental learning that is not available to a special needs child.
As the brain takes in the new information, the brain, ‘wakes up’- new neural connections are made. In which, the brain begins to change, becoming stronger, organised and positive changes begin to occur.
My son learnt to read and write aged 10.
In 8 months of ABM, fine motor skills were improved. He could now understand and sentence structure. As well as perform more than one task at a time.
Neuromovements built my son a better, stronger, organised brain. He was able to move himself beyond his ‘limitations’.

Now I offer this journey to you and your child.
Children with brain injuries, C.P. etc. can learn now to move in ways that were ‘impossible’ before.
Children with genetic disorders, developmental delay- can now learn to read, write and have a greater understanding.
Children with Autism can learn to connect themselves to the outside world.

Autism Spectrum

BREAKTHROUGH TREATMENT FOR AUTISM IN CHILDREN.

The Anat Baniel Method® (ABM) is a breakthrough NeuroMovement™ approach the job of the brain is to put order in the disorder and to make sense out of the nonsense.

ADD / ADHD

ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER / ATTENTION DEFICIT

ADD, ADHD can be devastating, challenging, leaving parents and all in contact with your child overwhelmed, have to find ways to address and go forward with your child.

Cerebral Palsy

NEUROMOVEMENT™ ANAT BANIEL METHOD®

Cerebral palsy is caused when there is a disruption in the development of the child’s brain, leading to difficulties with movement and at times also resulting in cognitive challenges.

Genetic Disorder

WHAT IS A GENETIC DISORDER?

A genetic disorder is an illness caused by one or more abnormalities in the genome, especially a condition that is present from birth (congenital) most genetic disorders are quite rare and effect one person in every several thousand or million (source Wikipedia)

Stroke / Brain Injury

WHAT CAN BE DONE FOR STROKE IN BABIES AND CHILDREN

The first thing to know is how important immediate intervention is. The brain is a self organising system and with children, it is highly plastic, meaning that the brain continuously grows and changes in response to its experience and does so extremely rapidly.

Undiagnosed Development Delay

ANAT BANIEL METHOD® (ABM) HELPS THE BRAINS OF CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS TO BE MORE SUCCESSFUL

With NeuroMovement™ approach of the Anat Baniel Method®, we understand when a child has special challenges, even if it is not clearly diagnosable, the sooner the intervention, the better.

Typically Developing Children

WORKING WITH TYPICALLY DEVELOPING CHILDREN

NeuroMovement™ is a holistic approach to human functioning based on movement is a language of the brain. Movement gives the brain information to the brain allowing it to grow and organise itself, developing and integrating the body, movement and feeling.
