Music therapy has provided her with a safe, accepting environment that celebrates her abilities and builds on them, giving Emily more self-awareness and confidence in herself. I have sat behind the glass during many sessions over the years, quietly beaming, sometimes crying, always rejoicing in my daughter’s lovely connection with her therapist and seeing her take risks that I never knew were possible"
"Music Therapy plays a big part in my daughter's life. Ingrid's speech has greatly improved, she is singing along with the therapist, she follows instructions very well and she is able to play 3 different musical instruments at the same time.
