This AMT session follows the structured approach that stimulates the brain, aids sensory processing, develops communication and motor skills and supports challenges associated with autism, all while having fun! Right from the warm-up activities and the Autism Movement Therapy® games, Hilary introduces various movements, giving time for the participant to practice and imitate her and then at the end of each activity, these movements are combined to create a full sequence of moves to the music. Included in this session are two warm up sessions, the AMT  ‘Mouse’ and ‘Freeze’ Hilary rounds off with a mindfulness section including positive affirmations. All activities are accompanied with clear instructions and are repeated several times to allow participants to join in from their first view.
