Denis – her son, 3: SMA
Like every family we started with ABM without knowing what will happen and without knowing what my son will do in the lessons. Because a new person who is touching him for 45 min. And that person does not know his language.
Everything was perfect from the first lesson. I don’t know how this happens but children love the ABM teachers from the first minute.
My son leaves the lessons very happy, although he is very tired. And after the lessons he is very energetic for a long time. He is more self-confident and because of this his movements changes. As his movements change I start to see the differences.
It is impossible to explain what they are doing but I am sure that what they do is really good for my son.
Viktoria – Alexander, 11: CP
Julia – Andrey, 6: CP
My son Alexander is 11 years old and he has got Cerebral Palsy. The last 11 years we’ve spent with trying many different methods and therapies.
There have been ones that helped and others that didn’t, but the feeling for the need to continue our research always remained.
At last we’ve found ABM and it was clear that it was what we’ve searched for. It is remarkable that we have such great results only after a few lessons of ABM:
- reducing of the spasticity in his feet
- it is easier for Alex to control his hands
- reduced tension of his upper-body
- he started to speak his first few words.
I want to write to you about the changes Andrey has shown since the ABM lessons. He doesn’t slouch anymore during sitting.
Andrey can sit down from being on hands and knee, relying on his hand, and he keeps his hand close to the body. His fine motor skills have improved. He scrutinizes objects with both hands. When lying on his belly, Andrey began to rely on his elbows, before he was almost always supporting himself with his hands, standing at arm's length.
Now his hands are free Andrey began to take things in his hands and study them standing on his elbows in the prone position.
The biggest news: Andrey began to listen when I am reading to him, to see pictures on the Ipad and to listen to sounds in the recording. Thank you very much!
