Thank you for using Greg's love of music to unlock his potential and provide the scaffolding to engage in the world around him.
Giving him some tools to self regulate via music, particularly through now being able to ask for a break with your 'I need to take a break' song, has empowered him to spend so much more time out and about, and engage with family and friends.
From using his strength in music to help build his communication, to learning colours and shapes, express emotions and build his repoirtoire of songs, you have given our little boy a voice and happy place in the world. And all while having an absolute ball (he and I).

“Music is the regulator of my nervous system, the shelter for my frazzled mind, the delight of my heart.”
Craig Romkema (2002) - poet living with autism
Our young adult daughter loves music. Craig Romkema’s quote (above) might as well be hers. She has been attending Attuned Music Therapy since late 2015. It hasn’t always been plain sailing – she gets overwhelmed easily – however on reflection we can see many changes for the better.
We’ve been impressed with Imogen’s expert input, along with her responsiveness, respect and care for our daughter. Imogen’s approach is flexible and targeted. Our daughter’s individualised practical program has enabled her to make great gains in both self-confidence and independence.
For our daughter music therapy has empowered her decision-making, communication and life skills…and she’s having fun doing it!!
