Round Up, July 8th

Hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July weekend! We've got some great music therapy stories today, including a feature from a major news network! Let's get to it.

Music Therapy Being Used to Treat Premature Babies (NBC Nightly News)

Last week, NBC News did a feature on music therapy in the neonatal intensive care unit! It's always exciting to see our field covered by major media outlets.

Music Therapy Helps End-of-Life Patients Cope (WFSU)

Hospice music therapy is a growing field, and this article out of Tallahassee, Florida gives you a great idea of why!

Music Therapy Facility Opens at Primary Children's (KSL)

Football fans will know the name Steve Young, one of the most famous quarterbacks in NFL history! Well, he's "thrown" (hah) his support behind a music therapy program at Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah! Looks like a great program!

Carly's Cafe - Experience Autism Through Carly's Eyes

 

Finally, we have this powerful video put together by a woman with autism and her father that attempts to illustrate the experience of having autism in a typical social setting, in this case having coffee at a coffee shop with the woman's father and sister. This video does a great job of capturing the difficulty with processing multiple sensory inputs bombarding you all at once, as well as the difficulty with verbally communicating wants, needs, and desires.
