In the fall 2012 students at Shenandoah University began doing student music therapy services at a practicum assignment with the Essential Pieces program. Two of the students continued to work at the center as volunteers this semester. The program offers parents of children with autism an evening every week where they can network with other parents and learn more about autism spectrum disorders through lecture and discussion. Meanwhile, the children are able to participate in music and recreational therapy offered by students from Shenandoah University. On February 21st music therapy students were invited to give a presentation to the parents regarding the use of music for children with spectrum disorders. ABC 3 Winchester has the story:
