LIFE (Learning Independent Function Everyday) was first conceived by Natan Gendelman. It is designed as a specialized education and rehabilitation system for children with neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy, autism and autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome, pediatric stroke, child developmental delay, and acquired brain injury.
The LIFE method emphasizes proper function and movement of the body as a whole. When a patient does not move in the proper way, it can disrupt crucial internal processes occurring within the body. This can include processes such as digestion and respiration, which are essential in nutrient exchange. When the brain and other key components of the body do not get the proper nutrients they require, it can negatively impact a patient's health and ability to learn.
