Praise for WAKING UP THE BRAIN!

Autism Movement Therapy ® Method: Waking up the Brain! is a ground-breaking work and a joyously life-affirming book. Here, the dance studio is both a classroom as well as a warm, safe, and fun community, fostering the development of the participants’ awareness from the inside out. Unlocking the unknown potential of those on the autism spectrum through dance and music, it offers new hope and real answers for those often pre-judged as incapable of change and a clarion call for the absolute necessity of arts education in child development.”                 

James Sutton, Ballet master, Choreographer and Writer, Former Associate Arts Professor, Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.

“The arts empower people with autism to connect. Joanne's "whole brain" approach, and the stories of the children and adolescents Joanne works with are inspiring and accessible, with the guidance of her book.”

Jane Ferris Richardson, EdD, ATR-BC, Associate Professor of Art Therapy, Lesley University, Art Therapist in Private Practice, specialising in individuals on the autism spectrum

"Thank you for creating AMT! and for sharing your program in this book! As a school based OT for 15 years, I work with more challenging students with autism. Like you, I am a firm believer in raising the bar for all our kids. We have used AMT in our school for years and AliveWithAutism, our nonprofit is working to bring you and your AMT workshop training to Binghamton, NY, where I will thank you in person. Many blessings!

Elaine H., Schneider, OTR/L

Reading the book for the second time in 2 weeks, notes written in all the margins. There are so many ways to utilize the information when using 'body-brain' connection with music while having fun at the same time! Pat Walters, Path International ~ Therapeutic Riding Instructor
