Hear what Noreen has to say about music therapy and communication…
“I am accepted as I am, but I always have potential. The songs help me to remember words. The rhythm and the beat make things easier to learn. It’s okay to take my time to say what I want to say. My teachers will always find a way to support me. Friends are here, that are just like me. In ComMusicate, I have a voice.”
~ The ComMusicate™️ Child
