Autism Movement Therapy® : Positive Behavior Support (PBS)
I observed closely how Joanne was managing her class and was in awe at her patience and understanding of the children. I have never met someone who really just “got it” when it comes to kids on the spectrum the way that Joanne did. She pushes them to do the best that they can do even if it is just making eye contact with her in the mirror. She understood that each child is different and she worked with each child on a sort of “case by case basis.”
It was so interesting seeing how Joanne combined neurological findings with dance sequences. During the routines she would make comments such as what movement works what parts of the brain and exactly her motivation for adding a certain dance move into her routine. Although from an outsiders perspective the class may seem like a kids dance class like any other however, Joanne really incorporates research based methods into every part of her class. Getting up and moving with the children was a lot of fun and an excellent way to be introduced to the therapy.
