Autism Dance Day

We cannot believe it has been thirteen 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.Step in the Right Direction
  • 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.
