Reflection

Brief overview of collection.

Julia Gothold's insight:

This curation has a bit of everything for the parent, teacher or perspective teacher of an autistic child who is interested in the growing field of Music Therapy.  For centuries, music has shown to be a very powerful tool in healing, and Music Therapy is used more and more in the Special Education field.  Although more research is needed, there are promising signs of improved attention and communication skills in those with autism who have regular use of a Music Therapy regimen.
