Watch as autistic children respond to music therapy.

Take a look at different therapies that can help them to function.

Debbie Denmon writes about Tristan, an autistic child. In a story on WFAA.com she tells of how Tristan’s parents were quick to get therapy for Tristan.  Watch the video of Tristan who responded well to music therapy.

Giving rewards encourage good behavior. In the case of Tristan, he loves blowing bubbles and looks forward to music therapy that helps children with autism learn to socialize.
For Tristan to sit in a circle with his three other classmates with autism is a true sign of growth.

“This is really a big deal,” Whidmann said. “A couple of years ago, they were all pretty isolated in a corner doing their own thing.”

Now, Tristan and his buddies sing and play instruments together. It’s a huge accomplishment as well considering the sensory overload some children with autism face. But, Tristan is embracing music once considered painful to their ears. It’s a sight his parents are grateful to see.

“It makes me feel great,” Hill said. “A little teary, but great. It wasn’t something we really thought we would see.”

Progress is possible with early intervention for children as special as Tristan.

We hope the story inspires parents of toddlers to consider getting early intervention if they suspect their child may be prone to autism.
