Autism & the Power of Music

Not much is known about the cause of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  What is known is that every individual on the spectrum experiences it a little differently.

Through the years, more studies have surfaced about programs, support, and activities that are particularly beneficial to the Autism community.  One of these is music.

This wonderful infographic shows some of the incredible benefits of exposing people with ASD to music:

 

The Academic Fun & Fitness Camp offers weekly music therapy to all of its campers.  A trained music therapist engages campers in vocal and instrumental music and song.  The campers get to experience music as a group and bond together as friends.

Applications for Summer 2016 are still being accepted.  For more information on enrolling your camper, click the image below:
