This chapter talks about the story of how the author's experience as a parent led him to become a dance movement psychotherapist (DMP). It offers his understanding of the historical relationship between DMP and people with learning disabilities in the United Kingdom. Some adults with autism and behaviour that challenge services continue to be supported under the Mental Health Act in hospital settings or in the community within a specialist provision for people with autism. Autism is considered to be a neurodevelopmental disorder with a neurobiological and sensory basis. Although these theories were part of his learning as a parent attending a mix of professional and self-advocate training and awareness events, hearing self-advocates' lived experiences contributed to his decision to explore a less medical perspective for his sons through DMP as an intervention. With greater social awareness of the needs of people with autism and learning disabilities, services began to adapt to more specific needs.
