I posted the video clip link above so that you can see the story in action. Working with this family brought me great joy daily. I really used a solid protocol and was able to see results quickly. Being that Cathy and Billy were already musicians really helped them to use some of the music therapy techniques with and without me there. It was nice to see Cathy’s gradual improvement over several months of treatment. When I first worked with her she could only mouth a few lyrics, but by the time she left us she was speaking in small phrases. I hope that she continues to make progress.
