We are starting to do MeMoves around our house when we get home from school and therapy. MeMoves was introduced to me from Trenton's OT. She has started using it with Trenton for the first few minutes of her sessions with him and received some great response from him.
MeMoves™ is an easy and innovative way to
increase attention and calm in as little as two minutes – in the
classroom, at home, anywhere – for people of all ages and abilities. A
multimedia product that transforms the mind and body through interactive
“body puzzles,” the program simultaneously engages a person’s auditory,
visual, motor planning and sequencing, and limbic parts of the brain.
Each MeMoves™ sequence is a patented
combination of music, movement and images, utilizing simple, geometric
shapes. Organized into three categories; Joy, Focus and Calm, users
select one of the 13 sequences on the DVD and follow along (imitate) the
actions on the screen.
MeMoves™ can be used as an early
childhood program for children as young as three, although it appeals to
a wide range of ages and abilities. It is particularly helpful for
individuals living with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, Asperger’s, Sensory
Integration Disorder, ADD/ADHD, anxiety and or depression.
MeMoves was designed from a mother of a child with autism.
I hope this is a great addition to our routine at home. I have to say it was the most expensive DVD I have ever bought but I will try anything and I mean ANYTHING to help Trenton.
Trenton, Andrew, and Mommy did MeMoves together today. Trenton lasted about ten minutes with it which is great for the first time doing it at home with brother and Mommy.
Here are a few pictures of Trenton doing some of the motions to MeMoves.
Andrew just wanted to smile and look cute.
