    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

  • well he always was an awesome person x3

    the client that i get to observe every friday has asperger's syndrome. He has trouble responding immediately to questions and statements and understanding what has been asked of him, often requiring clarification. He does not elaborate when asked a question, rather just responding with the "immediate" answer. (ex. "Did you have a good day today?" "Yes." rather than what most people would understand as "Did you have a good day today?" "Yes, I did this, this and this and it was awesome!") He has trouble understanding and following directions.

    However, when he and the therapist (who, an interesting twist, is Bryan's ex-girlfriend's mother x3 small world) were beating on some drums, she would ask him questions about his day and what he did in a rhythmic format, corresponding with the drum beat. He was able to respond quickly, accurately and with elaboration. But as soon as you took the drums away it was back to being slow to respond, failing to understand questions, and not elaborating. The difference was remarkable.

    It is things like this that can help people with mental or developmental disorders improve their ability to communicate with and function in the real world. It is also thought that music therapy can be used to treat Alzheimer's and some physical disabilities, and certainly issues like depression. It's a pretty awesome field of study.
