This webinar provides a brief overview of some of the latest research and interventions for autism spectrum disorders and how dance/movement therapy (DMT) fits within these current trends. Presenter shares information about the revised criteria for those with autism-related disorders that are now published in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) and distinguishes the differences from the DSM-IV diagnosis that included four separate disorders. Attendees are provided talking points of how DMT addresses specific diagnostic criteria as an intervention for people with ASD. It is a hope that this webinar may provide a starting point to invite further discussion for more ASD/DMT research to transpire.
