The following videos show the Child'Space method of Dr. Chava Shelhav working with Jasmine, a toddler who suffered a severe brain injury at age 30 months.
Along with the significant emotional and motor improvements that take place, you will see Jasmine improves her ability to move her right arm and she gradually accepts it as part of a more complete self-image. Having incorporated her right arm into her self image, she begins using it, providing stimulation that drives further development.
