Finding a Voice Through Music Therapy

Alex and works with
Anna Rennekamp.
Around the corner and down a hallway, the melody of "Feliz Navidad" is coming from a room with a two-way mirror.
Inside the room at Marywood University, Alex Conte strums a guitar. His therapist sings a verse of the popular Christmas song, and Alex, who has severe autism, sings a few of the words. His mom, sitting behind the glass, smiles.
For 19-year-old Alex, communication is found in music.
