Spectrum Dance Therapy (SDT) comes from Autism Movement Therapy® (AMT) which was developed by Joanne Lara, M.A. SDT is a form of therapy that combines a structured program of AMT, Music Therapy, and Applied Behavior Analysis. The combination of these forms of therapy improves speech, coordination, attention, memory, behavior, and sensory disorders. SDT is a natural strategy for individuals with Autism to teach them how to have self expression through music and dance while developing a sense of confidence and independence.
