As seen on abc7 Eyewitness News! NEUROPLASTICITY through SENSORY INTEGRATION "Joanne Lara knows that the brain needs the body to move. In this DVD she gives the gift of her artful knowledge to children with autism, helping them to fulfill their wholeness and their potential." - Martha R. Herbert, Ph.D., M.D. Professor Neurology Harvard Medical School (Portion of sales to Dr Martha Herbert & TRANSCEND Foundation @ MassGeneral Hospital for Children) Sensory Integration - One father of a child with autism say's, "Wow. My son loves this DVD." Autism Movement Therapy is the first simple, FUN step-by-step instructional DVD to integrate music and movement for individuals with autism spectrum disorders. Autism Movement Therapy combines structured movement with music connecting the left & right hemispheres of the brain for a 'whole brain' cognitive re-mapping approach. This innovative and creative new approach is the perfect solution for working with your child or student and assisting in the way that they interact with their peers, works in groups, and perform academically in the classroom. AMT allows you and your child/student to creatively move to structured sequences and patterns in your own home, office or in a classroom for just 15 minutes a day, 2-3 times a week in order to see results. AMT is a natural strategy for students with limited speech and language communication skills because they are able to express themselves through music and dance and at the same time experience the thrill of actually moving their bodies through space. Research studies indicate that the bridge between the left and right hemispheres - when strengthened - allows information to be transmitted that otherwise is not being processed. Bridging the two sides of the brain to increase cognitive processing assimilation or ' WAKING UP THE BRAIN' is the ultimate goal of Autism Movement Therapy.

So, the concept is great and integrating left and right brain is my goal right now, but this DVD is useless.
Thankfully I borrowed this from the library, but thought I would give a heads up for mommys like me who are on the search to find helpful tools for our adorable autistic kiddos. Skip this one :)
