The children I work with who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders have benefited from MeMoves in the therapeutic context. The kids are engaged and actively participating with the imitative movement of other people, which inherently is a challenge for them. The metronomic music incorporated into the video facilitates their ability to focus and attend. Following the video I have seen improved engagement with the child’s therapist. Also, improvements in imitative movements of the articulators for improved speech production were noted. Based on the research, it just makes sense to use MeMoves with kids with ASD. MeMoves is beneficial in many ways.
