A practical guide to the innovative Autism Movement Therapy ® (AMT) approach - structured movement and music classes designed to stimulate the brain, aid sensory processing and decrease problem behaviours in children with autism spectrum disorders. Reflecting a growing interest in the body-brain connection, and incorporating the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, the AMT approach uses music and movement to develop audio, visual, gross motor and spatial awareness skills in children with autism. The book breaks down the components of the typical 45 minute session, from circle games to story dances, and explains how the reader can create their own AMT program. This exciting new approach will complement other therapeutic techniques for children on the autism spectrum and can be used by a wide range of professionals, such as teachers, arts therapists and dance instructors, as well as parents and carers.

"Play-Based Interventions for Children and Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum explores the most recognized, researched, and practical methods for using play therapy with the increasing number of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), and shows clincians how to integrate these methods into their practices. Using a diverse array of play-based approaches, the book brings together the voices of researchers and practicing clinicians who are successfully utilizing play and play-based interventions with children and adolescents on the autism spectrum. It also examines the neurobiological underpinnings of play in children on the autism spectrum and the overall effect of play on neuro-typical and neuro-atypical development. Finally, through careful integration of theory with real-world clinical case application, each chapter also shows clinicians how to incorporate a particular treatment approach and make it a viable and effective part of their work with this challenging clinical population"--Provided by publisher.

The concern of this text is the need that many individuals have for nonverbal, primarily physical forms of expression, and how this need has fueled the development of a new psychomotor discipline. The book treats the theory and practice of dance therapy, and examines the entire field from its inception through the present. Dance therapy, the use of dance/movement as a healing tool, is rooted in the idea that the body and mind are inseparable. The book is organized into three units. Unit 1, containing three sections and eight chapters, presents a view of the early development of the field of dance/movement therapy, along with an historical and chronological description of the profession as described in the published and privately circulated literature about six major pioneers in the field (Marian Chace, Blanche Evan, Liljan Espenak, Mary Whitehouse, Trudi Schoop, and Alma Hawkins) and their followers and proteges. Unit 2, "Subsequent Development of Dance Therapy," includes three sections: Laban Movement Analysis and Dance Therapy in the United States, Further Expansion of Dance Therapy Theory and Practice (East and West Coast influences, and psychotherapy), and Dance Therapy with Other Patient Groups. Unit 3 contains two sections which present respectively, results of a survey of registered dance/movement therapists and dance therapy heritage trees--the spread of influence of the major pioneers. Three appendices provide: names of survey respondents, a list of American Dance Therapy Association members, and a copy of the dance therapy questionnaire. A bibliography of approximately 800 references completes the volume. (LL)
