Music has a way of speaking to people and the words are often just a bonus. In the case of these songs the words are the key. They give an insight into the world of a child with autism spectrum disorder. They tell us what it is like to live as they do.
This first song is sweet and gentle with a country feel to it.
This one has a harder edge to it and will probably appeal to older kids especially if they know and like Jack Black.
This is just one of the songs from the Miracle Project album "Fly" which features duets between celebrities and children with autism. Isn't that a great idea?
Music has a way of conveying the message where regular conversation doesn't. I hope you enjoy listening to these songs and I hope that they help you in your understanding of ASD.
