Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

"What I am after is more flexible minds, not just more flexible bodies." The motto of Moisé Feldenkrais apply equally to the method developed by his student Anat Baniel. Like the practice of her mentor, the Anat Baniel Method utilizes movement with attention to help the brain grow and form. This gentle approach has been demonstrated to be effective with children with special needs because it does not force children towards developmental milestones they cannot achieve; instead, it wakes up the children's brain incrementally to create new connections. An often successful way to turn on "the learning switch."

Alisa Schnaars

From the Publisher
“This wonderful book illustrates how to engage the miraculous capacities of the brain to change and heal.”
- Harvey Karp, MD, creator of the DVD/book The Happiest Toddler on the Block

“Kids Beyond Limits gives parents and others who care for special children new hope and a new sense of possibilities."
Arianna Huffington, AOL Huffington Post Media Group

"This accessible, insightful, practical book for parents of children with special needs will profoundly deepen their ability to help their children improve....Anat Baniel is a master clinician for children with special needs. The stories presented here are not exaggerations; they are triumphs from which most parents of children with special needs will surely benefit.” — Norman Doidge, MD, author of The Brain That Changes Itself

“I have observed Anat’s work with severely challenged individuals over a period of more than two decades, and have witnessed transformations that are simply stunning. My hope is that the Anat Baniel Method will reach the greatest possible audience and that it will become a part of academic teaching, training and research programs in rehabilitation medicine and in physical therapy, and the sooner, the better.”
Dr. Daniel Graupe, University of Illinois, Chicago

“Anat’s work with children is magical. She’s their brain whisperer. This hugely important work will free special needs children and their parents from fear and limitation moving them into a world of new possibilities and joy.”
John Gray, author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus

“Anat’s work is wonderful and profound. Kids Beyond Limits does a masterful job of helping parents and caregivers help the special child in their lives. This is a book of great wisdom as well as deep appreciation for the great challenges of raising a child who has special needs.”
— Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul
