THE WALDON APPROACH IS A MOVEMENT-BASED SENSORY MOTOR THERAPY
FOR DEVELOPMENTALLY DELAYED CHILDREN
At the Waldon Center, we help your child develop and achieve their potential. See how your child’s concentration, behavior and understanding of the world improve by working with them yourself for 20-40 minutes a day. It is never too late to help your child’s cognitive, emotional and social development.
Walter Solomon is a parent, author, practitioner and trainer. He is the director of the Waldon Center and two peer-reviews have appeared recently on his work.
You can find a fuller explanation of this therapy in Walter’s book Autism and Understanding – The Waldon Approach to Child Development (not only for Autism): (SAGE 2012).
This case report on the Waldon Approach is about an older woman; however, it is interesting that there were clear benefits even for her, and no other therapies were in use for her before, during or after the treatment period.
In addition, Walter has trained therapists at centres in Milan, Berlin and Rome and will be giving a workshop in Copenhagen next month. So far, all the centres where he has run workshops have adopted The Waldon Approach as an integral part of their regular practice.
In May 2016, Walter gave a workshop at the Young Child Conference in New York and he has been invited back to present a paper at the upcoming 2017 Conference on Thursday May 4th at 14.00.
Walter would be happy to speak to you +972 (0) 50 430 4583 and you can contact him via email and he will explain the underlying principles behind his work.
You are also welcome to contact parents with whom we can put you in touch for their views and recommendations.
Please contact Walter to learn how we can help you to help your child’s development.
“We just had our first meeting. Thank you Walter. That was the hardest I have ever seen Leia work. To see her do purposeful work with her hands and concentrate for such a long period of time was so exciting for me. She actually looked like she was enjoying herself! Bless you.” Tanya, July 2016.
