This music therapy video with a child with Williams syndrome illustrates the following:

  • Putting academic information into a musical form helps kids with special needs learn and remember the info better
  • You can take a familiar melody like Twinkle Twinkle, Brother John, or Row, Row, Row, Your Boat and substitute the words with academic info.
  • Humor can capture a child's attention and make learning fun and motivational
