About Us

Who We Serve

Arts for Healing serves the special needs population of children and adults living with communication disorders through integrated music therapy and art therapy. Our mission is to break through barriers that isolate them, creating a channel for self-expression through the arts.

They include children, adolescents and adults with learning and developmental disabilities such as autism, Down syndrome, pervasive developmental disorders and other neurological dysfunctions, the elderly, cancer and stroke victims and those with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, as well as individuals with brain injuries and physical disabilities.

What parents are saying

Dear Miss Karen, As you know, I auditioned for the play Honk, Jr. at my school. Guess what -- I got the lead role of Ugly! I think all of my work in music and theatre at Arts for Healing really helped me do a good job at the auditions. So thank you for helping me so much over the past 8 years. I'm really excited. Love, Brian "Music can always be there when you need it."
Zeke, 8 year old boy with Asperger's Syndrome
Dear Karen, you have been able to bring out Harold's smile and his joy of life. He can open up and let us know more of what he is feeling and thinking. What a gift for a parent!
From a parent
Thank you for your music and for all the joy and learning you've brought to Jeremy. All the musical intelligence you've encouraged will thrive! He'll always remember you.
From a parent
Her awareness of others and her ability to use her language has improved tremendously in the past few years. I think the music has been a real key in her development.
Heidi's mother
Daniel has grown in so many ways through the art and music sessions. He is expressing himself so much more clearly and fully. He seems to be so much more comfortable with who he is.
Cheryl, Daniel's mother
I've seen Manny move from being isolated and in his own world to being able to join his peers in school and even at home with his younger sister.
Jason, Manny's father
