Movement Method: Using the Power of Movement to Help Children with Autism
Movement is powerful. Having a bad day? Dance it out. Overwhelmed with life? Go for a run. Children not paying attention? Let them move around! Research has shown us that children absorb more knowledge when they are allowed to use movement in the classroom, so why not us movement to create a better learning in a therapy environment?
Learn Movement Method
We invite you to join us for an in-person workshop to learn more about Movement Method. Created by Rupert Isaacson, Movement Method is an evidence-based therapy model for children with neurocognitive differences such as autism and is based on the premise that children must be able to move in order to learn. This holistic, non-coercive therapy model:
- Helps improve your child's intrinsic motivation, attention, communication, social interaction and emotional regulation
- Uses movement and interactive interventions to increase curiosity in your child
- Encourages each person in your family to become more compassionate, connected and growth-oriented
- Gives your child the ability to experience a richer, fuller life
- Allows your child to be a child!
With humor, candidness, and a real understanding of wholehearted living two members of the Movement Method team, Joell Dunlap and Vanda Richardson, will be presenting practical and relevant information to each person who attends this workshop. Not only will you learn the details of Movement Method but you will walk away from the event with practical advice you can start using immediately!
