Sensori-motor auditory visual education (SAVE) was created by Dr. Mary Ann Block, who believes that combining three autism therapies works better than one at a time. Block, a physician in the Dallas area, uses visual, auditory, and motor training, which she says, “... [T]ogether helps develop, retain and expand the ability to take in, understand and use information more effectively.” A session involves the child lying on a padded chair that rotates slowly. The child watches colored lights on the ceiling and listens to music. Block explains that certain sounds are filtered out of the music, encouraging the child’s ears to fill in the blanks.
