"The Drums Are His Therapy" - A Powerful Story of Using Special Interests to Make a Difference in a Child's Life

A powerful story of how finding a child's special interest and passion made a difference in his life. After discovering his love for drums, Ian, a child with autism made great progress. Here's a quote from the article.

"Ian began to flourish. Ian’s coordination improved. He was no longer bumping into things. He could color inside the lines. He began talking without being prompted. He became focused. He gained self confidence. Ian stopped running from his parents. His violent episodes dissipated. His IQ jumped from 76 to 130. He earned awards, musical and academic. And two years ago, Ian learned he no longer needed occupational and physical therapy. The drums are his therapy."
