Roberta Scherf, founder of MeMoves, was looking for a way to help her daughter with autism and sensory integration disorder. She used music and movement to help calm her daughter and as a result saw improvements in eye contact, reading, and communication. There is no narration in the video nor are there loud noises; the video is useful to calm and focus people from the ages of three to seniors.

Joy, Calm, and Focus are the three video sequences presented. “People of all ages and ethnicities, from young children to grandparents, are shown one at a time, slowly moving their arms in different patterns and keeping rhythm to a mesmerizing beat.” Chanda McDonnell, a teacher who uses MeMoves in her classroom says, “It just settles them down so quickly and gets them ready to go back to work.”
