Drum-Based Therapy

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- TreVaughn Powell, 13, tapped out three beats on his drum, making the shape of a triangle.
Dina Selleck, 13, drew a square with her drum solo.
They were among the students at Potential Development Center demonstrating the Students Motivated by The Rhythmic Arts Project, or TRAP. The project, funded by the Youngstown Foundation’s Hine Memorial Fund, is a collaborative effort between Youngstown State University’s SMARTS and the CreativeBridge Coalition.
The 55 students at Potential Development are all on the autism spectrum.
