One last item from ATIA! As I wandered around the exhibit hall on the first day I came across a very busy booth for MeMoves. MeMoves is a set of DVD's the help increase focus, concentration, and calmness. The movements are simple and can be done sitting or standing. The beat is slow, 40-60 beats, and is very easy to follow. Some of the movements can be hard to do (just try moving one hand up & down, while the other makes a square), but the DVD's show many different adults & kids doing them, some well and some not so well. It's a great way to show that we all do things differently. The program was designed by a mom of a daughter with Autism, but would work for many students! The best part is the price - $59.95! This program is a great way to "warm up" your brain!
