'(student) usually sleeps his way through the morning. With these instruments he is awake, alert and showing his appreciation throughout the session. You can see how much he likes it by his face and his verbalisation' (staff member)

'today (student) was agitated and did not want to engage with anything. He found the repetitive beating sounds soothing and he actually sat and joined in, you could see his mood change' (staff member)

Please invite me back! (Lynn, Beat It)
