Brent Knoll School is running a pilot programme of Autism Movement Therapy for older primary classes. Each week children will take part in Autism Movement Therapy® sessions provided by MovementWorks. The class offers an innovative, energetic and structured approach that stimulates the brain, aids sensory processing, develops motor skills and addresses behaviours associated with autism, with emphasis on the body-brain connection, all while having fun!
Autism Movement Therapy®, is a movement and music method which allows complementary progression from the MovementWorks Developmental Dance Movement™ Programme, an approach already delivered in the Brent Knoll curriculum and other mainstream and specialist schools across London. If the pilot is successful it is intended to extend the programme into the younger secondary classes
