I finally got to check this one out,thanks Chris.I haven't had any first hand experience with this, other than stories from one of my old reiki teachers, who worked with autistic kids in a study using classical music, and tribal music , and had great results.... Ron seemed to have the same answer to several questions,,, find their interest and jump in with them. I did that with my son, and he's not autistic, and it was the best thing I ever did with him. We would talk ourselves to sleep at night on those topics...
