Autism & Developmental Disabilities

“Good parents make their children realize they have more ability than they think they have so that they consistently do better than they thought they could.” Charles Erwin Wilson


another sappy photoThese are all original songs created to bring compassion and awareness to the issues faced by families affected by developmental disabilities, including autism. Several of the songs were created through a storyboard session with a group of 15 parents from the New Hampshire Council on Autism Spectrum Disorders and five songwriters. Parents shared stories of what it’s like raising a child with a developmental disability and through the conversations ideas for songs began to emerge.

There were lots of tears and laughter shared, and after the session the songwriters left with lots of notes and inspiration and began creating songs. We know there are lots of websites with facts about developmental disabilities; our goal was to use music to show its human perspective.

Additional songs were created in collaboration with NYSARC, America’s largest non-profit organization supporting people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. Through stories shared by families and staff, songs were crafted to capture the perspectives of both parents and those with a developmental disability.

If you’re with a nonprofit that works to help people with autism and other developmental disabilities, you can get a web store just like the one below and use these songs to inspire support for your organization. There’s no cost to join the campaign. Get more details…
