The Johns Hopkins Motor Stereotypy Behavioral Therapy Program

Johns Hopkins researchers have developed a behavioral therapy program for children suffering from primary complex motor stereotypies (CMS). The Johns Hopkins Motor Stereotypy Behavioral Therapy Program has been clinically proven to reduce the severity of primary CMS in children from ages 7 to 17. Developed from studies demonstrating that combined two component therapy can successfully reduce the frequency and severity of these movements, the program is a parent-administered therapy that is safe and effective.vAn instructional DVD helps parents teach their children the behavioral modification techniques necessary to reduce CMS movements.
