Dear parents,

As a parent of a child with Cerebral Palsy, I would like to share a few thoughts with you before we start to get to know each other better:

1. To our great disappointment, there is no such thing as a magic wand in the form of a device, bioenergy or method for the treatment of the kind of disorder that we are facing.

2. I urge you to be very cautious towards anyone promising that they would put your child back on his feet and regulate his muscle tone in one, two or six months. Don’t give up on that person at once, but set a deadline determining how long you are prepared to wait! Then watch carefully, watch the children coming to the same treatments.
Be truthful to yourself!
Try to be realistic and believe in what you are able to see, and not in what you would like to see. Ask yourself, “Is this kid’s condition better than five or six months ago?”
Don’t believe everything that parents tell you about the progress their children, or some other children, have made. We tell people stories that we would like them to hear and have little to do with reality. Then we begin to believe what we tell each other. We believe in what we would like to see happening, instead of facing reality.
The medical history of each child with cerebral palsy is ALWAYS different, NO EXCEPTION. Each child exhibits a unique pattern of deficits. The degree of damage is not the same. There are FIVE levels of brain damage. Is it possible to compare the success of the treatment in a child who has only the first degree of damage with a child who has the fifth?
So, let’s be honest with ourselves first. Assess the level of damage in your child by yourselves:

3. Time is a crucial factor when facing this problem and it is far too precious to be wasted on unrealistic promises!

4. I often tell the parents that we are running a marathon! Don’t focus on the speed at which you would run the 42.195 kilometres, but distribute your strength, energy, love and money evenly over a longer period of time, so that you can finish the race successfully. We are not Usain Bolt to run the 100 metres, do our best and reach the finish line in a few seconds … we are marathon runners! There is such a long, long run ahead of us…

5. ‘I am a parent of a CP child.’ Once you have managed to say it out loud without any sadness in your heart or voice and with no tears in your eyes, your strength, energy and motivation will increase immensely! When you stop blaming yourself or some other person for what happened to you and your family, your determination to fight for your little one will be unstoppable!
My husband and I have travelled across Europe, and I even visited the USA in an attempt to find the most successful treatment for our son Vuk. That is why I am certain that I am offering you the most modern methods used in the world today all in one place:

The ABR method is one of the first methods we applied on our son Vuk. We travelled all the way to Copenhagen to study it. I’m a great admirer of this method and still apply it on my son. I strongly believe that, combined with primitive reflex integration, it is the basis for all the other methods used to treat CP children.


Every child with brain damage has a different medical history. Therefore, our approach is strictly individual for each child.
We strive to offer you a wide range of methods in one place, so that you wander as little as possible. We’ll show you the shortcuts as our twelve-year journey is measured in thousands and thousands of kilometers…
We have a wide range of serious tools with which we will fight together for our children.

Welcome and thank you for trusting me!

I will try to justify that trust with all my heart. I was taught in the United States never to give any promises, but I can promise you one thing:
We are going to practise with your child in exactly the same way as we practise with my own son!

Dedicated to all the parents who are ready to fight for their children,

Yours respectfully,
