Written by a team specializing in children diagnosed on the autism spectrum, this music was created to address non-musical goals like anxiety reduction, motor movement, social engagement, speech and cognitive functioning.

Portland Music Therapy is a private practice in Portland, Oregon that specializes in children diagnosed on the autism spectrum. We use music to achieve non-musical goals like anxiety reduction, increased motor movement, greater social engagement, enhanced speech and improved cognitive functioning. Over the years we have developed an effective system that helps to reach these goals. This CD is designed by credentialed music therapists and a mom to support kids with autism and their families.
