"Programs like Joanne's Autism Movement Therapy offer opportunities for our kids to develop the necessary and fundamental skills that benefit all our kids.  Art saved my life!"
-Temple Grandin, PhD  
There's a bridge between the left and right hemisphere that transmits information. What happens with our kids is that the transmission of the information is not going through. Dance and music forces the brain to reorganize itself. Through the music and the movement the child is being asked to hear the music, process the sequence and the patterns, and then dance, it takes both sides of the brain to dance. "   -Joanne Lara, M.A. Special Education
