'Your Sing To Learn CD is tailor made for us, with three ASD children between the ages of 5 - 9, to reinforce the Values, Social Skills and Curriculum that we are trying to teach. The catchy tunes, simple phrasing and repetition allows us, as parents, to present the same information over and over again, via CD, in an engaging, consistent and non threatening manner.'
