In This Together: Music For Autism Makes Live Performances Accessible to Kids On the Spectrum
Robert Accordino brought Music For Autism to the U.S. as a med student in 2007, with the goal of creating a safe space for kids with autism and their families. 'We have this judgment-free space for interactive, participatory concerts,' Accordino explains. The concerts are free to attend. During the pandemic, the org quickly pivoted to online performances, encouraging viewers to make music along with musicians using household items. Shamel Lawrence Sr.
