Developmental and Social Benefits of dance for children with ASD

The AllPlay Dance team is conducting a study to explore whether children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) experience any benefits to their social, cognitive, emotional, behavioural and/or motor skills from participating in a classical/contemporary AllPlay dance program.

The program will run across eight sessions at our Deakin University dance studios in Burwood, Victoria. Disability and dance experts will facilitate the sessions and children with ASD will be mentored by “buddies” (i.e., older more experienced dancers). Following the program, children with ASD will have the opportunity to perform a short dance piece in front of their family and friends.

We have finished enrolling children with ASD for this study. If you would like to hear about further studies, please go to the Deakin Child Study Centre Research Registry on the AllPlay website.
