Caring for special needs children can be a challening task for parents and caretakers. We are always looking for ways “to get through to them”, to help them improve their grades, to help them succeed in society as best they can. One method is the use of Music Therapy. But is this effective with special needs children?
Music therapy has been proven effective for children with varying disabilities such as Down Syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, and many more. By doing a little research online, you’ll many stories, articles, and even books written on the subject.
Although we at currently have no statistically proven scientific data to make a claim regarding the use of Piano Wizard Academy, we have received numerous anecdotal responses from caretakers of special needs individuals. We have heard (and seen) that the game and method has been used successfully with individuals with Autism (ASD), Down’s syndrome, and individuals with mental and physical challenges.
In fact, many stories reported back to us tell of not only being able to play the game and have fun but of an “opening” in the underlying process that the individual has leading to increased interpersonal relationship between the caretaker and the “special” music student.
One such story that has grabbed everyone’s attention is that of Jed.

We don’t claim to be a replacement for a music therapist. These health professionals use music and all of its facets—physical, emotional, mental, social, aesthetic, and spiritual—to help clients to improve or maintain their health.
However, a parent or caretake can certainly contribute their own form of music therapy by engaging the child in specific forms of music learning. Using Piano Wizard Academy has been shown an effective tool in many instances.
If you have a special story about an educational experience you were involved in using the Music Wizard Academy with a special needs individual, please share your story with us.
