The Jeremy Krauss Approach for children


The Jeremy Krauss Approach for children, based on the work of Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais

The Jeremy Krauss Approach (JKA) is a unique way of helping children with special needs to learn, grow and develop, based on the work of Dr. Feldenkrais.
The primary focus is on helping special needs children develop their potential and abilities – physically, mentally and emotionally.
Children are supported to learn, change and overcome developmental challenges of various kinds through a process of Progressive Developmental Abilities Formation.
The various developmental challenges and disorders that the Jeremy Krauss Approach works with include: cerebral palsy, spasticity due to accidents, childhood stroke, autism spectrum, genetic disorders, brachial plexus injury, scoliosis and various undiagnosed developmental delays and difficulties, and many other developmental disorders and challenges seen in children.

In this introductory workshop Thomas Farnbacher will present following basics of JKA:

  1. Specific group lessons with Developmental themes and questions (Sensory Active Developmental Movement Lessons – SAM)
  2. Ways to enhance your observational skills
  3. Hands on study, utilizing the JKA, plus various techniques, processes, and methodology derived from Dr. Feldenkrais’ Functional Integration
  4. Models of the JKA methodology
