Developed by Joanne Lara, M.A., Autism Movement Therapy combines a structured program of movement and music, connecting the left and right hemispheres of the brain for a “whole brain” cognitive re-mapping approach that significantly increases concentration, focus, speech, language, and social interactions.  Autism Movement Therapy is a natural strategy for individuals with autism and other developmental delays with limited speech and language communication skills and allows self-expression through music and dance while developing a strong sense of self-determination and independence.
