Music therapy to treat children with autism

April 12, 2019

After their child was diagnosed with autism, Aaltje van Buuren and her husband Jaap van Zweden decided to launch the Papageno Foundation. Established in the Netherlands in 1997, the foundation focuses on the development of children and young people with autism. The American Friends of Stichting Papageno made a $90,000 grant for a music app and music therapy workshops specifically suited for children with autism.
