What People Are Saying
“Music Therapy is a time when the students are MOST engaged!!! They are more vocal during music therapy than any other part of the day!.”
“I wanted to yell, scream, shout my praises of Linda and her amazing work with some of our kiddos during music therapy. A few weeks ago, during her session, he was the most engaged and active as I have EVER seen him. He typically has difficulty even grasping an object and he was able to hold on to her musical instruments. He was even hitting his tambourine TO THE BEAT!!! This was so amazing!! He was focused and engaged throughout most of the session. Linda has even helped with our team collaborations on app ideas and classroom tools for him!! I can see the amazing work she does and she LOVES it!! So just wanted to express my love of Linda and music therapy and how important I feel it is for these kiddos!! Thank you thank you thank you for including music therapy in CASE’s repertoire!!
