Autism Movement Therapy

Autism Movement Therapy

Autism Movement Therapy is an empowering sensory integration strategy that connects both the left and right hemispheres of the brain (interhemispheric integration) by combining patterning, visual movement calculation, audile receptive processing, rhythm and sequencing into a “whole brain” cognitive thinking approach that can significantly improve behavioral, emotional, academic, social and speech and language skills.

The primary goal of Autism Movement Therapy is that after 12 -14 weeks of two or three 12 minute sessions a week, the individual will be more compliant when asked to complete on-task activities, will interact with typical general education peers more frequently, and will be using both sides of his brain for processing. Increased overall self-determination awareness, along with healthier, improved self-esteem is the ultimate goal.

Through cognitive re-mapping, Autism Movement Therapy® is an interhemispheric SENSORY INTEGRATION technique incorporating movement and music in collaboration with Positive Behavior Support (PBS) strategies to assist individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in meeting and achieving their speech and language, social and academic IEP goals.

“What If?”

Today I’m going to do a mental exercise of sorts. A “what if” scenario, as it were. Specifically, I’m going to examine what I know about my own childhood from the scattered, fuzzy memories I have of the time as well as my own mother’s recounting of what she remembers…
