Kenneth is a 5 years and 6 months old boy with autism. He has motor, cognitive, and language developmental delays. He has joined our class for 2 years and 11 months.
“I found Kenneth emotional for different reasons and always hard to express his emotions differently. I understood that it’s one of signs of sensory over-responsivity due to Autism's sensory issues. In the beginning, he could not communicate with us and became irritable and overactive in the class. We assisted Kenneth in engaging in musical activities and got his attention shortly to increase his participation in the class. I am very pleased to share with you that Kenneth is getting better to understand teachers’ instructions and improve his motor skills. We have confidence to facilitate meaningful progress for him through our project. I am grateful for your support to give hope to more children and families in Taichung, Taiwan.”

** Kenneth is the fake name due to the fact that the privacy and safety of individuals is respected.
Due to "autistic" symptoms, we have to spend more time and patience to encourage children in the class because we know the difficulties of sensory challenges to Autistic children. The music therapy plays an important role in Autistic child growth and it is a well-established and risk-free technique for using musical interaction to help developmental delay children. We really appreciate your generous donation over the past years and your support to help more developmental children change their future. Thank you!
