FURTHER INFORMATION

AMT Stage 1 Certification - Intensive Training Workshop
Over two days, the objective is to teach you the scientific background plus the tools and techniques used in an Autism Movement Therapy® programme. The methodology will be explained and practised. During the training participants will experience two full sessions of Autism Movement Therapy® and learn how to differentiate for the level of need of groups and individuals. .

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will gain deeper knowledge about autism, brain function, the relationship of movement and cognition and how the AMT method specifically benefits autistic individuals.
  • Participants will learn how the elements and strategies combine to create an effective Autism Movement Therapy® session and the tools needed to create a multi person performative sharing based at their own facility/school.

After completing Stage 1, you will receive official Autism Movement Therapy® materials including the licensed music. We encourage you to lead AMT sessions with your children/class/group to better support them and practise delivering the method.

Stage 1 Certification by itself is not a Professional Qualification but it can be considered as the first step
Stage 1 Certificate Holders must complete the Stage 2 Professional Qualification Programme to be able to use the official Registered Name, Logo and/or advertise/charge publicly for Autism Movement Therapy® (AMT) services

Stage 2: Professional Level Qualification Programme
There should be a minimum of six months between Stage 1 Certification and undertaking the Autism Movement Therapy® Professional Qualification Programme. Those enrolled are expected to have practised and be confident/proficient in the delivery of all the elements and strategies covered in Stage 1 with a group of autistic students ideally with differing levels of need.
If you are AMT Certified/have completed Stage 1 contact us to find out more about the Professional Qualification coursework, assessment and licensing process, professional registration and costs.
