Dr. Lori Baudino advises how parents can intentionally use their bodies and movement to improve communication, understanding, and harmony in relationship to their children.
Dr. Lori Baudino, has been a practicing clinician for over a decade. As the National Clinical Spokesperson for The Andrea Rizzo Foundation, and with their sole funding, Dr. Baudino brought the first Dance/Movement Therapy Programs to UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where she provides bedside therapy to children with cancer, special needs and terminal illness. Dr. Baudino has specialized in supervising, facilitating and providing treatment for children with special needs and their families. She has worked in psychiatric hospitals and at rehabilitation centers for trauma, addiction and pain management. Dr. Baudino coordinated Behavior Intervention Programs within the home/school setting.
In her private practice, she works with children and their families, to support the developing child and the integral relationships between parent, child and siblings. Understanding the “premise that the body, mind and spirit are interconnected” and that life is experienced through movement – Dr. Baudino’s approach allows the child to put words into action, understand individual sensory and motor preferences, express emotional needs, and support overall integration and well-being.
