The development process during childhood is crucial and is closely related to how the child moves and how various habits are formed. Typically developing kids have a great opportunity to learn healthier movement and thinking patterns. The learning process used in NeuroMovement is potent enough to change the child's developmental trajectory. It may also extend far beyond movement and into other physical, cognitive, emotional abilities.
Children diagnosed with various developmental, learning or neurological disorders can utilize the brain's enormous capacity to reorganize and form new habits, often leading to the recovery of function and acquiring new skills and abilities. These outcomes helped propel Anat Baniel's and NeuroMovement’s popularity among parents with children with special needs and adults recovering from neurological and developmental disorders.
