We have recently been looking into Music Therapy as a way to help Scarlett progress musically and have been visited by a specialist in the field from UK based charity the RNIB. Here is an account of the visit and the informal notes made about Scarlett and what actions can be taken to further progress this love of music.

    He seems to really love Bebot! I just purchased the app after watching Ivan use it. Gabby is only 3 1/2, but we are always looking for ways to involve her/motivate her at home and at preschool. She is non verbal so right now we are using the Big Mack switch, so she can participate in her classroom by picking out activities for classmates to do or participate in circle time. Thanks so much for sharing! So inspiring :)

    He does love the iPad! They've been using Bebot at school and now I'm thinking we should get it for home too. He also really likes ThumbJam!

  • Mica Ensign

    That's great! Pretty sure our oldest had ThumbJam-ill have him show it to Gabby after school today. Thanks again!
