BABIES AND CHILDREN
WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

Typical children learn through random movement, accidentally discovering how to move, roll over, and relate to the environment.  Through repetition they are creating their mind-maps, their neurological connections and their self-image.

When there is interference or damage in the nervous system, children with special needs have limited or no access to these random movements. As a result, their brain and skeletal-muscular system are restricted from developing fully.

 By facilitating their movement, and moving them into and out of positions based on the neuro-motor development, we communicate directly with the child’s nervous system.

 Feeding proprioceptive, kinaesthetic, sensorial experiences to the brain, it can thrive with this information, creating new neurological connections and developing abilities and functions in a progressive way.

With my approach and experience, I guide you and your children through a progressive learning and improvement process, to develop their neuro-motor skills and relational abilities in order to reach their full potential.


These are some of the children I work with:

  • Cerebral Palsy 

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA)

  • Muscular dystrophy 

  • Undiagnosed developmental delays and difficulties

  • Brain injury

  • Childhood stroke 

  • Chromosomal and Genetic Disorders

  • Brachial plexus injury

  • Scoliosis

  • Dyspraxia 

  • Autism Spectrum

  • Down syndrome

Gaya Kiel Approach

Developmental learning process

With a combination of floor work and in warm water, my approach provides greater possibilities and range to form abilities and function in a fun way.

If you're in Basque country

We can work on a more weekly basis or in addition to the therapies that your child is already doing. In warm water or floor work. Each session is 30-45 min. long.

Around Europe

Dates and information available shortly

Non-Invasive

Adapted and tailored to every child’s need. If the child doesn't learn, I will adapt until the child can learn.



 

When you come from far away

5 day intensive with 1 or 2 sessions per day, 30-45 min. each. Combining floor work and in warm water.

I would be pleased to meet you and hear your story

Hopefully I can contribute to a greater wellbeing of your child.
