Dance Therapy and Autism Spectrum Disorder: The Moving Relationship
In this webinar, Dr. Christina Devereaux will draw from core principles of dance therapy, social engagement theories, and sensory processing research as guiding perspectives for the participants. Core strategies utilizing a multisensory approach will be used to decode the neurophysiological communication that may be occurring through repetitive restrictive behaviors. It is essential to note, however, that any intervention approach with autism requires recognizing the complex nature of each individual’s unique differences, including strengths and challenges. When we begin to understand the emotional reasons behind the dance in children’s behaviors we can then learn to speak each child’s language and help support the acquisition of skills in a collaborative, reciprocal, moving relationship.
