& Autism Resource

The Con Tutti Resource Booklet and CD is a teaching aid designed to encourage musical ability in children with autism. The book is co-authored by Ailbhe O Halloran & Fiona Jennings from the Centre for Special Educational Needs Inclusion & Diversity (CSENID) at St Angela’s College and Róisín Egan, Development Officer at Music Generation Sligo. The material in this book was tried and tested as part of a research project. Music lessons were carefully prepared, planned and adapted to best suit the needs of the children.

With plenty of lesson plans, tips and lots of useful ideas your music session will be enjoyed by all students. The C.D that accompanies the booklet has a variety of songs which you can use in your music session. You will find many familiar tunes with modified lyrics so all the songs are more physically engaging.
