I work at a Special Education School with children who have Autism. There are six boys in my classroom, ages 9-12. Research has shown that students with Autism benefit from learning through music. Several of the boys are emerging readers, all have difficulties with fine/gross motor skills and most of them love to listen to music. My students do not receive music at school, so I have been teaching them to sing simple songs in order to increase their reading and verbal abilities. Unfortunately for them, I don't sing very well, so I am requesting a keyboard to spice up my music sessions. I played the piano for many years, and I believe that having a keyboard will allow me to better captivate and motivate my students. I already have many music books. I am requesting a keyboard to use for my class and to better captivate my students.
