When a mother faces her child’s difficulties, she removes heaven and earth to find a way to help him/her. So when we were discharged from the hospital and went home, having overcome a little postpartum ups and downs, I started to investigate. You can’t imagine how many hours I’ve spent in front of the computer reading in Spanish and English all kind of information regarding Biel’s diagnosis.
After a lot of research, I found a teaching method called Jeremy Krauss Approach (JKA) for children with special needs (a methodology based on the work of Moshe Feldenkrais).
JKA is a unique way to understand early development and help children with special needs learn, grow and develop. It is a method solidly grounded in the science of neuroplasticity – the brain’s ability to change and reorganize, forming new neural connections and development pathways regardless of the condition.
The focus is put in a therapeutic learning process to help children with special needs develop and increase their skills. It is a neurophysiological therapy that helps the development of the nervous system and skeletal-muscular system. The goal is that every child, whatever their developmental challenges are, can make better use of their physical, mental and emotional potential.
JKA is not invasive. It is based on movement and respects each child as an intelligent human being. You don’t try to fit the child into any frame. On the contrary, a framework is developed and tailored to each child.
I liked this method so much that I went to Germany to learn about it and I graduated. Biel began to learn differently and demonstrated it to us with his progresses. He keeps learning with the help of this wonderful method.
Thank you Jeremy Krauss for teaching us so much!
