Why The Feldenkrais Method®
with DonnaRose?

Focusing on helping children and babies with special needs
or disabilities

DonnaRose sees the potential in your child’s ongoing growth and development…instead
of limitations and problems

Having a child with special needs or a disability is very often challenging. Helping your child meet their fullest potential is something all parents want, regardless of the challenges they face.

As a parent of a baby or child with special needs or a disability, you could be used to seeing your child struggle. More than anything, you would love to see your child increase their abilities and be delighted and excited by their growing range of movements and learning.

DonnaRose works with many challenges, including neurological, traumatic, physical and genetic conditions. Feldenkrais and JKA for children helps with various developmental concerns and challenges.

Conditions Helped by Feldenkrais and JKA:

  • Delayed development of gross or fine motor skills
  • Low Muscle tone
  • Complications from Birth Trauma
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Spasticity due to accidents
  • Childhood stroke
  • Autism spectrum
  • Genetic disorders
  • Brachial plexus injury
  • Scoliosis

Children from as young as a few weeks old to teenagers can benefit.

In fact, the younger the child, the more plastic their brain and, often, the more rapidly they improve.

Children love the gentle and playful modality of these sessions based on The Feldenkrais Method®.

Using movement and touch to work with the brain JKA and Feldenkrais wake up the learning mechanisms of the child, improving their skills and self-regulation while teaching them to move with greater ease and confidence.

A child learns to roll over, walk or play with a ball through curiosity and exploration, they start to move their body in many fun and varied ways. When DonnaRose works with your child, she uses playful, enjoyable and exploratory movements to tap into these natural learning processes.

The Feldenkrais Method® wakes up your child’s brain to create new connections, leading to spontaneous and often extraordinary breakthroughs in movement, thinking and self-regulation.

Precise and gentle touch helps babies become aware of their limbs and know where they are in space. With the practice of this touch, babies can better feel themselves and their possibilities for movement. Touch is also a potent way parents can help babies regulate their muscle tone, both up and down, for their situation.

The Jeremy Krauss Approach (JKA) is a unique way to learn, grow and develop for children and adults.

The primary focus is to help develop potential and abilities – physically, mentally and emotionally.

JKA – Jeremy Krauss Approach

Connecting the brain with the body, improving movement and wellbeing

JKA is founded on the science of Neuroplasticity, or the brain’s ability to change and reorganise itself, to form new neural connections and developmental pathways.

The central focus is to support your child to develop and increase their abilities through repetition, connection and collaboration.

It is a neurophysiological therapeutic method that helps with the continuing growth and development of the neuro-muscular-skeletal system.

It supports children and adults to learn, change and overcome a spectrum of functional and developmental challenges of various kinds. The goal is that any child or adult can better meet their potential – physically, mentally and emotionally.

JKA is a non-invasive movement-based approach that respects every child and adult as intelligent human beings. It is 100% personalized process, developing a framework that fits each person.
