"Since 2010, we’ve had the pleasure of watching Tamela work with our son, Zac. Zac was diagnosed at age 2 with Autism and is now a happy, balanced 19 year old. Over the years, we have had a regimented schedule of home schooling, speech, OT, PT, and ABA therapies. We searched for opportunities for Zac to extend himself creatively and are so grateful to have found Tamela and her Joyful Music Therapy! Tamela has a gift working with children with special needs. Taking the time to understand our development goals for Zac, she weaves into each lesson specific opportunities to reinforce our ABA goals and the life skills we are developing. Under Tamela, Zac has learned how to read music, play the piano, guitar, African drums, and the lap harp. Zac is even taking voice lessons now to help work on his enunciation. Tamela has been such a blessing to our family. Zac is so much more focused and confident! Many thanks to Tamela and Joyful Music Therapy for giving Zac a creative outlet to express himself."
