"I am thankful to have had the chance to welcome Becca into our home to work with our autistic son. Music therapy helped him find his 'voice' for communicating and self-expression. I have used and shall continue to use music in our daily activities and during transitions which at times, with autism, can be challenging for both child and parent. I look forward to our future music adventures with Becca, she has been a breath of fresh air in his development!" ~ Joni (parent)
