Music Therapy

Sing it!!If you recall, Mikey was in Newsday back in May because of his involvement with music therapy. The music therapist who works with Mikey is John Carpente who started The Rebecca Center for Music Therapy at Molloy College. John is currently attending Temple University for his PhD. John's thesis is about Mikey and he has posted it on the web. I thought you may be interested in reading about Mikey and about the many benefits that music therapy has provided to Mikey. Creative Music Therapy with a Boy with Multiple Impairments: Stepping out of isolation into new experiences.

Started to read... Shouldn't "synroid" be "synthroid"?

I keep coming back to look at this because I just love the photo, such animation, it always makes me smile.

Don't blame John for the misspelling. Michel gave him a list of Mikey's meds and Michel has the worst handwriting. You would think a nurse would be a neater writer but it seems that something about being in the medical field makes you lose the ability to write neatly.

Of course, what I really wanted to say was "thanks for sharing this Tom".
