Autism Movement Therapy® AMT, the first therapy method designed for individuals with autism that combines movement and music, is proving to be one of the most effective ways of stimulating communication between the four lobes of the brain to increase overall cognitive processing. AMT literally awakens the brain by introducing a structured and fun form of therapy through music, dance and improvisation. This 4 unit course is offered as a Level I Certification with an AMT Certificate at completion.

Developed by Joanne Lara, M.A., Autism Movement Therapy combines a structured program of movement and music, connecting the lobes of the brain for a “whole brain” cognitive re-mapping approach that significantly increases concentration, focus, social interaction and sensory integration.

AMT is a natural strategy for individuals with autism with limited speech and language communication skills, allowing for self expression through music and dance while simultaneously experiencing the thrill and joy of moving their bodies and developing a sense of self-determination and independence.

“Programs like Joanne’s Autism Movement Therapy offer opportunities for our kids to develop the necessary and fundamental skills that benefit all our kids.  Art saved my life!”   – Temple Grandin, PhD
