GROOVE: AUTISM MOVEMENT THERAPY®

COMING SOON - TBA, led by Cricket Desmarais, AMT certified

for children 7-12 years old with autism & their parents, teachers, & paraprofessionals

Give your child a sense of freedom & space to grow in this judgement-free, structured environment that supports them in becoming comfortable moving their bodies & being in a group setting. AMT is an empowering sensory integration strategy that combines movement (patterning & visual movement calculation), music (audile receptive processing & rhythm), and improvisation (sequencing) into a “whole brain” cognitive thinking approach to significantly improve behavioral, emotional, academic, social, speech and language skills. Supported by academic research, the AMT method is proving to be highly effective in activating and awakening areas of the brain.
