Dance Movement Therapy & Autism

“Movement as a universal language.”

Dance Movement Therapy has been called a “bridge of contact and vehicle for communication” with people with autism.This clinical info sheet from the American Dance Therapy Association describes why.

Additionally, more recent research also support the use of dance movement therapy in helping in the area of the triad of difficulties in autism: communication and social skills as well as flexibility of thought and imagination. DMT-with-Autism-page-001DMT-with-Autism-page-002
