Move With Us


As special education teachers specializing in autism and other developmental disabilities, we were introduced to the correlation between exercise and brain stimulation by an occupational therapist. So we incorporated exercise into our Helping Hands Art and Exercise class.  In addition to reinforcing a healthy habit, it allows the teen and young adult participants to release energy so they can focus on their activities more intently.  Most importantly, the participants love it. Many parents expressed desire for their teen to exercise at home as well.  So we decided to make a DVD which features upbeat music for all ages as children transition into adulthood.  The repetitive movements are easy to follow as there is no background stimulus so your child, teen or adult can focus on the dance moves. 

We also piloted our exercise DVD to a senior citizen group in Freehold, NJ and found that they love it! It is easily adapted to any ability, and even seated one can still participate. You are never too old to begin exercising, and exercise has been called the best anti-aging therapy!
​"For the elderly exercise can, quite
literally, save your life" (Mercola.com).

Whatever your age, we hope that you enjoy moving with us! DVD run time: approximately 30 minutes.

​" I ordered your exercise video earlier this year and my group loves it. Do you happen to have any other exercise videos? Thanks!"

"We used your video on Thursday for the first time and all my students were quite engaged and yet it was challenging for them.  I have a Special Needs PE class of about 9 kids with varying complexities from non-sight to some children with varying physical abilities.  Some have no physical limitations and others have major problems with their movements. We have 3 Educational assistants that help some of the children modify their movements to the video.  Overall the video was well done and very applicable to our students.  Thanks."

“This is the most fun I’ve ever had exercising”

                      .........Jack, Wall Twp, NJ


“Parents are going to love this too!”

                     .........Melissa, Brooklyn, NY


"My 15 year old niece has been slowly gaining weight. But she thinks her treadmill is boring and that mainstream videos are too difficult to follow. Move With Us is perfect! It is fun, colorful, and keeps her interest.  She loves it! It is exactly what we've been looking for. Thank you!" .............George, Jersey City, NJ 


 “ I love this video.  The directions are clear and simple which made it easy for my son with autism to follow. It will also make a great Holiday Gift !" ...................Michelle, Morganville, NJ



"I've been looking for an exercise video for a friend's teen and stumbled across this while searching the web (bought from Helping Hands website but should have bought on Amazon because it has free shipping). A great find. There are several exercise books for people with special needs, but they don't keep his son's attention. This video does. His son has tons of energy and this is a great way to channel it. He is calmer when he is done."………………………..William 2014



"My son is twelve and loves music and dancing . . . and I just can’t listen to the pre-school songs anymore. I wasn’t sure if this DVD would be a waste of money, but for 21.99 it is cheaper than a trip to the movies, and it claims to have music meant for people of all ages, so I thought “What the heck” and bought it. Here’s what I think:


The claim is true. The music is lively and not at all pre-schoolish (is that a word?)


My son actually watches it and tries to do the moves (very fun to watch him)


My son chooses to do this as an activity all on his own (shocking to me)


He is mesmerized by the colors (you’ll see what I mean if you buy it)


The ladies wear modest clothing (thank god)


It is not the best studio quality, but he doesn’t seem to care (so I don’t either)


Overall, a good buy (better than a trip to the movies because my son can use it over and over and over)"……………………MJ    Jan 2014





"I was so happy to find this video at the Autism NJ Conference. My son doesn’t really like to exercise, but he has been gaining weight, so I figured I’d give the video a try (he does like the exercise bike but stops after only a few minutes). We use the video at the same time every day (as suggested) and we both enjoy it. It keeps his attention because it is colorful and the instructors are energetic. And he likes to do the whole video because once he starts something he likes to finish. Besides getting us both in better shape, it’s a nice way to do an activity together."

"I gave this as a gift to my friend’s teenage daughter with autism. Her daughter has great difficulty focusing and is often running around the house. My friend put the DVD in for her daughter and left the room (not being a huge fitness buff, she wanted to see if her daughter would exercise by herself). We waited in the other room to see how long her daughter would watch the video and couldn’t believe that she was engaged for a full 30 minutes. When she was done, she told us it had it “had lots of colors and was easy to do.” We’re not sure how much exercising she actually did, but it’s a start. And we had a full 30 minutes to ourselves, which just doesn’t happen!"……………………….G Feltham         2014



"I am almost 80, even though I feel like 50! (I like to think I look like 50 but that may be stretching it) I do not have a special needs child, but I was a bus driver for special needs individuals for years and years. So now that I am retired and have many hours a day to browse the Internet and to simply do whatever tickles my fancy, I found this dvd and was, of course, curious. I was truly fascinated by the concept because I have never, in all my many years, seen anything like it. I should also tell you that this almost 80 year “young” gal is very active and loves to dance. I walk a lot, and I go on my exercise bike, but I love trying new things. And with the cold winter, I thought this would be a good thing to try for myself. I actually love it! It is a REALLY good dvd for autistic people (and for us “young” elderly people). I like how every song has a clear ending with colorful hands swirling on the screen just before a new song begins (when I need water this is when I drink it). It is a very good technique for keeping someone’s attention because the beginnings and endings are clear. Also, it’s lively and fun. The instructors have lots of energy and smile a lot and seem to really enjoy what they are doing. It becomes contagious. This dvd hits the nail on the head! I’m glad I lived to see something like this created for a population that has a special place in my heart." …………………….GH Coffey           Feb 2014
