I just returned from the first segment in a year-long training on using the Feldenkrais Method to help children with special needs. I’ll be going back three more times, and in the interims I will have additional study and research to do. I have been working with special needs children for the last five years, and when I see how much the method can help them, I am eager to do more.
My teacher, Jeremy Krauss, was a student at Dr. Feldenkrais’s Amherst training. He followed him to Israel where he lived with and worked very closely with him, translating much of his work from Hebrew into English. His understanding of the method is profound. He has done a great deal of work with special needs children, and I have found him to be clear and generous teacher. When he offered this training, I signed up immediately.
Soon, I will be offering a free, informational workshop designed to help parents and caregivers understand how the Feldenkrais Method can help their children reach a new level of functioning. Watch this blog for details.
Children who benefit from this work include those with Cerebral Palsy, developmental delays, autism, ADHD, sensory processing deficits, various birth trauma including torticollis, brachial plexus injuries, and many more conditions. In order to work with as many children as possible over the next year, I am offering lessons to special needs children for half of my regular fee.
If you have, or know of someone who has a special needs child under the age of 12, please be in touch!
