Voices Together uses music to build communication and connectedness for people with autism.

Voices Together is an innovative and evidence-based education model that uses music as a tool to jump start language and social connections in students with autistic challenges.  The program literally gives voice to each student in the program and provides a full hour-long interactive experience where students sometimes speak for the first time or reach out to a peer for the first time.

Founded in 2006, Voices Together annually serves over 400 children and adults with autism and intellectual and developmental disabilities through an innovative educational model that is music-based.  It facilitates these unique group sessions in the community and the six school districts in North Carolina. It uses the structure of a chorus, the power and engagement of music, combined with the evidence-based techniques of therapy and education, creating a safe, motivational space for transformational learning.
