OUR PROGRAM

Dance Movement Therapy for special needs children and adults.

The Heart at Play's Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) program employs dance exercises and techniques coupled with unique innovative intervention tools such as ropes, rings, and puzzle mats that result in holistic healing for the special needs person. Holistic healing is characterized as measurable progress in participant's behavior, sensory integration, and physical, cognitive and social activity.

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DMT?
  • Participants exhibit more positive behavior

  • Participants are able to comprehend their surroundings 

  • Learning and mastery of tasks will be easier

  • Promotes relationship building
