Mom music: New CD targets autism
Singer-songwriter Cathy Bollinger has made children the focus of her previous albums From a Mother's Heart and Toddling Tunes– as well as Singing Sounds, which helps Chinese children learn English. Her most recent release, however, is for an unfortunately ever-growing group of children: those with autism.
My Turn, Your Turn features 14 songs about communication– a struggle for the thousands of autistic children in the United States.
With titles including "People Like It When I Say Hi," "Please and Thank You," and "It's okay that Sometimes I Don't Understand," the catchy songs are yet another tool in a parent's arsenal to reach kids who just a few years ago seemed unreachable.
