Joanne Lara will be in the UK this April to run AMT® certification workshops that will be open to ALL. With no dance experience required to participate the author of Autism Movement Therapy® Method: Waking up the Brain! will guide attendees through this unique program that outlines the functions of the brain specifically pertinent to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and shows how music and independent movement can help strengthen the body and brain connection. This practical and positive programme will give all comers the techniques needed to use AMT® effectively in a range of environments and will provide all who complete the course with a certificate.

Joanne will be running the first of these workshops at the Ballet Rambert with Ali Golding the founder of who says…

“Joanne’s approach compliments my own professional objectives in highlighting how dance has enormous power to optimize development & learning potential for all. The AMT® method strikes the right balance; a recreational dance session which includes opportunity to develop creative imagination & yet raises the barre of expectation within a structure that supports those on the autistic spectrum”
