Sound is a powerful force that can change the lives of many people. Individuals with Autism may struggle in different areas including various forms of communication, social skills, behavioral difficulties, and more. Vocal and/or instrumental sounds (music) can make a significant difference in how individuals on the spectrum make sense of the world and deal with their challenges. Music is an essential tool, an important educational element for students with autism, that must be provided as part of their education so that they may have better opportunities to blossom to their full potential. The power of sound is explored through interviews, case studies, and more.
