Where to Find A Good Teacher for My Autistic Son?
I am searching for a good teacher for my child, recently diagnosed Autistic at age nine. He has been learning to play piano for the past four years and encountered some problems in his progress.
I wish I could help you, but I don't know of any list of teachers specially qualified to teach autistic children.
However, I was interested to see a recent posting in a forum I watch at Pianoteaching.com, and I will give you the link:
I have looked at the links posted on this thread, but didn't find them very helpful at the time. There appears to be a course called "Innovative Piano" written with special-needs students in mind, but I would have to see it and try it before recommending such a thing.
More helpful, I thought, were the suggestions by the mother (Mishee) with the boy who benefitted from singing his songs first before learning them on the piano.
I wish there was some kind of Teachers for Special-Needs Students List... good luck!
