Teaching Drumming to Children with Autism
Jay DiBella uses his passion to open children’s eyes to music.
The Speak Through the Arts program is designed to help families affected by autism promote creativity, self-expression and accomplishment through exploring the arts in a sensory sensitive environment. The program also helps children develop fine and gross motor skills and increase their social and communication skills one artistic activity at a time… “You can feel the magic,” said Julia Tosi, the nonprofit’s assistant director. “Music is such a powerful method of communication for kids that have problems communicating.”
