Our goal is to provide a path for children with autism to learn
words through music and become capable of independent speech.
We help children sing what they cannot say
Most children with autism can SING what they cannot SAY
Our research shows that music and language are acquired in different parts of the brain.
In autism, the language centers are impaired but the music centers are generally not.
Sing to Say uses music to bridge to the language centers.
We are building a vocabulary and music is the teacher.
Four Key ELEMENTS
Sing to Say includes four key elements:
- We pair words with music and animation
- We test for understanding and retention
- We teach directly what the words mean
- We use playful engagement as a vehicle for learning
