Is your child developmentally delayed? We can help.
The Waldon Approach is a movement-based sensory motor therapy for developmentally delayed children. At the Waldon Center, we help your child develop their concentration, behavior and understanding of the world. Train to help to improve your child’s cognitive, emotional and social development.

We are here to help developmentally delayed children achieve their potential, which is usually much higher than expected. We see excellent progress in the children that we work with and you are welcome to contact us for a free in person or Skype consultation.

The main site gives a detailed overview with many videos of the Waldon Approach/Functional Learning, and information on the recently published book Autism and Understanding. The National Autistic Society reviewer wrote: "this is a book I am going to treasure".

The Parents and Professional site provides comprehensive and free training for parents and professionals seeking to improve their effectiveness in working and playing with their children. The lectures and training were originally given at the Feuerstein Institute in Israel where the author was employed as a practitioner.

Walter Solomon is a parent, an author, a practitioner, and a trainer who works at the Waldon Center in Jerusalem.

He is responsible for the development of this website.
