Abstract

Introduction: Recent evidence suggests that systemic-relational approaches to corporeal mediation such as Biodanza SRT turn out to be innovative strategies in educational-didactic proposals for people with Autism Spectrum Syndrome.

Case presentation: Through the enhancement of corporeity and the integration of music, emotions and movement lived in groups, the Biodanza SRT system induces motor, relational and emotional experiences, by stimulating the possible communication and relationship, the emotional self-regulation and the autonomy capabilities, healthy lifestyles and behavioral skills that can be spent in everyday life.

Conclusion: Biodanza SRT is an important opportunity for the development of functional skills in areas that are most undermined by the autistic disorder: that of communication, social interaction, interests and behavior in general; it represents an innovative and effective strategy that determines the increase of psychological, motor, emotional and relational well-being by improving the Quality of Life (QoL).
