Warwick group holds autism therapy through song
A Warwick group is approaching the issue of autism therapy with an approach that it says is a more natural, non-threatening way for autistic kids, or anyone with autism, of having fun.
Melinda Burgard started her group "Melinda's Music" in order to help autism patients overcome what many see as a disability, and try to turn it into something else. "Something about music, the area in the brain it touches, goes past the disability and makes it an ability," Burgard says.
Melinda's Music not only meets once a week at the Warwick Reformed Church on Maple Avenue to sing and play instruments, but holds other classes throughout the week as well. For more information on the program, click here.
