Autism therapy can be really expensive. On top of the cost of therapy, home program support and all of those adapted special learning materials you are buying, the financial hit each month can feel overwhelming. This is why I have made such a dedicated effort to get programs reimbursed for families at my learning house. It has taken 8 years, but families are finally starting to come to my center, Le Chemin ABA, for free! #yay
I am always looking for free resources I can share with the families I help, knowing that everyone loves a free resource and feeling happy to keep the financial cost of having a child with special needs to a minimum. #winwin
Free music resources
We all know that children with autism tend to love music! This is not the case for every autistic child but, in my experience, for the vast majority of kids with autism. Music can be an invaluable tool for getting through to children who have short attention spans and little motivation to stay present with you. It is also just really fun for all kids. I highly recommend these free music resources for special needs learners to add some music to your everyday lesson plans!
