Helping children make sense of their world


"It is not about increasing your will power, but increasing your ability"
―M. Feldenkrais




Lessons with babies and children focus on improving coordination and quality of movement to stimulate and better organize their developing systems.

 

Taba works with all children. Some of them may be challenged with:

  • falling asleep
  • developmental movements (ie. rolling, crawling)
  • unhappy 'tummy time'
  • interacting with others
  • low/high muscle tone
  • spasm
  • cerebral palsy
  • brain/nerve injury
  • brachial plexus injury
  • autism
  • Asperger Syndrome
  • attention deficit disorder
  • communication disorder
  • cortical vision impairment
  • hip dysplasia
  • stroke
  • birth trauma
  • other trauma and concerns

 



Using Developmental Movements:


Futaba's sessions with children use hands-on guidance as well as sounds, textures, colors and other sensory stimuli to help the child to experience developmental movements. These movements are vital stimuli for the baby's developing nervous system to learn how to connect with their environment. Providing the right support at the right time helps the child discover how she can move more comfortably and easily. Discovering of the "I CAN" sensation empowers children to explore on their own.
