Walter Solomon is a parent, author, practitioner and trainer. He is the director of the Waldon Center and two peer-reviews have appeared 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). A review of Walter’s book was also published in JADD, the leading international journal on Autism and Development Disorders.
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.
Walter has trained therapists at centres in Milan, Berlin, Rome and Copenhagen. So far, all the centres where he has run workshops have adopted The Waldon Approach as an integral part of their regular practice.
In October 2018, Walter gave 4 days of workshops and 2 days of supervision in the Waldon Approach at Fondazione MindTime, in Canobbio, Lugano, Switzerland. He is giving 2 back to back workshops with supervision in Denmark in early November and has been invited to speak at the Neurology and Neuroscience Conference in London in July 2019.
In May 2016, Walter gave a workshop at the Young Child Conference in New York and was invited back to present a paper at the 2017 Conference.
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.

“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.
