Workshop scheduled for parents of special needs children

A special workshop that promises to help parents and caregivers learn techniques that will help special needs children suffering from chronic pain and other limitations regain full functioning will be held Sept. 13 at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel & Convention Center in Atlanta.

The one-day workshop, scheduled to begin at 10 and run until 5 p.m. in the Kennesaw Ballroom, will be taught by world renowned creator of the field of NeuroMovement and best selling author Anat Baniel . The cost is $125 per adult.

Baniel has developed a science-based approach that focuses on the child’s brain and its ability to change and learn. She uses gentle movements to help children with special needs overcome their limitations.

Rather than try to force children into developmental milestones they are not ready to do, Baniel uses movement to “wake up the child’s brain” and create new connections that often lead to movement, thinking, self-regulation, and connection with others.

In addition to helping children and infants with developmental disabilities, she has helped war veterans with severe injuries as well as world class musicians with repetitive motion injuries, and athletes to overcome injuries and reach new levels of performance and regain full and active careers.

Her techniques and achievements are recognized by medical professionals worldwide.

Workshop participants will learn the remarkable capacity of the brain to change physically, emotionally, and cognitively. This is hands on- learning how to reduce your child’s stress, pain and limitation, and increase everyone’s well-being and joy as your child begins to improve in new ways. Professionals will learn techniques for breakthrough outcomes with their clients.
