AUTISM MOVEMENT THERAPY

AMT is an interhemispheric sensory integration technique incorporating movement and music in collaboration with positive behavior strategies,  assisting individuals with autism spectrum disorder.

There’s a bridge between the left and right hemisphere the transmits information. What happens with our kids is that the transmission of the information is not going through. Dance and music force the brain to recognize itself. Through the music and the movement, the child is being asked to hear the music, process the sequence and the patterns, and then dance, it takes both sides of the brain to dance.
