Autism & Percussion Interventions.....

This video is an overview of a program were developing at Saint Francis University that deals with using percussion interventions for children with Autism. We're in the midst of studying whether these specific techniques can help children with Attention to Task.

The video has made it to the second round of the "Telly Awards" which is an important web award. Have a look and vote for it if you like it. The exposure this award could bring to the program would be immensely helpful.

  1. Jim, thank you for doing this. My 9-yr old son is diagnosed as high-functioning asperger's. He loves to grab the drum and generally can "get" a rhythm before I can. It seems to help with attention to tasks after he is done drumming.
