Auditory-motor mapping training (also known as AMMT) is an intervention which aims to promote speech production directly by training the association between sounds and articulatory actions using intonation and bimanual motor activities.
AMMT capitalizes on the inherent musical strengths of children with autism, and offers activities that they intrinsically enjoy. It also engages and potentially stimulates a network of brain regions that may be dysfunctional in autism.
