Did you know that music can be one of the most powerful ways of healing and processing our emotions?
Brain science tells us that music is the only activity that lights up all sides of the brain at the same time.
We also know that many children who are non-speaking can sing. And many children who are extremely verbal can become mute when strong emotions or meltdowns occur. Yet, music is one form of communication that can reach through the talking barrier.
I know what it's like to have a child in distress and not be sure how to help.
My name is Leah Irby and I have a 20+ year background as a music educator before becoming a parent to an autistic child. I started to innovate with the tools from sound healing and music education that I had learned to help my child lower anxiety and help us to better communicate with each other while still enjoying time together.
I will soon be launching Song Language Academy, an online program for parents of autistic children. Join the mailing list today and be the first to know when we get started.
