It is a form of expressive therapy that uses both movement and dance to support intellectual, emotional and motor functions of the body. Through this exposure, movement can be used to achieve emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration goals. Founded within the idea that motion and emotion are interconnected, this creative expression can also help improve communication skills for better relationships.

Behaviour modification is defined as “the alteration of behavioural patterns through the use of such learning techniques as biofeedback and positive or negative reinforcement.” Behaviour therapy, given by parents and with the support of healthcare providers, teaches children to better control their own behaviour, leading to improved functioning at school, home and in relationships. Learning and practicing behaviour therapy requires time and effort, but it has lasting benefits for the child.
