A little weekend reading for you!
Dr. Jayne Standley, Florida State University's Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor of Music Therapy, has pioneered research for music therapy with premature infants in Neo-Natal Intensive Care Units. She created a device that plays music every time an infant sucks on a pacifier, which her research indicates helps infants learn to feed themselves faster (an important milestone for premature infants).

The George Center currently employs two music therapists who are trained and certified to use this device in NICU settings. Learn more about our services for healthcare facilities!
