Music Therapy is going GREAT! Holly is amazing! The kids LOVE her!! In fact, one of my students who loves the computer more than life itself, will actually turn the computer off independently when she enters the room!! He is so happy to see her when she comes! And another student who will pretend to sleep to avoid things (she also has terrible behavior where she yells, hits, wanders, lifts her shirt, the list goes on…) is wide awake and attentive and has BEST behavior!! It’s awesome! I can not thank you enough for this! It’s truly remarkable! I only wish we had more money so we could have more therapy!! – D.R., Teacher
