Music and Autism Project Sponsored by Research Autism

News Release Date: 3 February 2006

Research Autism was successful in helping to obtain sponsorship for this 2 year University of Portsmouth project. The project was undertaken by Jessica Curry and a double CD has been produced containing a collection of original music, songs, stories and games for children and young adults across the autistic spectrum. Connections includes over two hours of music in a variety of styles: pop, rap, dance, folk and country. A full user guide is included, which gives ideas and instructions for using the resource within specialist and mainstream classrooms or at home.
