Music communicates where words cannot

26 Jan

Music plays a key role in the autistic classroom. Music communicates where words fail. The main role it has in our classroom is to relax. Many of our students find every day life very stressful and unpredictable. 

We are lucky enough to have a sensory module, and we use it extensively to help children with their emotions. Their all time favourite track is this one which I found online. It is royalty free so feel free to use it yourself. 

music speaks

One child describe lying in our sensory room with this music on as ‘being transported to heaven’ 

Does music speak? Definitely. What does it say to you then?

    I agree with you. Sensory module is great in the classroom.

    I agree with you that music speaks. Sometimes it speaks things I want or need to hear. Sometimes, it surprises me. But always, it uplifts me and holds me firm. I believe that is its magic.
