It has been more than five years since my daughter was diagnosed with autism and although we’ve pursued traditional therapy options over the years, including speech, occupational and physical therapy, it was a dance class that really proved to be the most effective therapy for her. In a dance class you can work on physical therapy skills, occupational therapy skills, speech therapy skills and social skills, all in a fun an interactive group setting.
Since those early days of a combo class of tap, ballet and tumbling, Ava has matured into a beautiful young ballerina. She loves ballet and now she attends a dedicated ballet school program. As parents, we are allowed to view classes twice per year and this is a snippet of what I was able to see last week during the school’s spring viewing week. Thank you for letting me share.
