Autism Dance Day
We cannot believe it has been twelve years that we have celebrated Autism Dance Day!!!
Benefits of dance and movement for autistic children and adults:
- Improved attention and concentration.
- It gives freedom to be expressive of their emotions, using movements.
- It helps enhance their social interactions and leads to the formation of relationships when placed in groups.
- A therapist can help people to develop vocabulary skills, using the imitation of the repetitive movements the person engages in.
- They learn different patterns of movements required for daily activities.
- Group sessions are best to develop communications and social skills.
- Choreographed sequences can help in enhancing one’s memory.
- Touch during therapy helps in reducing sensitivity to physical touch and helps build trust.
- Improved body image.
- It helps in developing body awareness and promotes general well-being.
- Different planes of motion during therapy helps to stimulate verbal communication skills.
- It also helps to strengthen fine motor skills.
- It provides a platform for autistic individuals to build upon their social skills, which helps them further to understand the emotions and feeling of other people.
- They learn to develop empathy.
- It helps them to learn adaptation to different situations.
So, get your dancing shoes on and strike a pose and have fun!!! #dancelikenooneiswatching
