When Zishan’s Occupational Therapist discovered his positive response to music and rhythm, Variety was there to help.
Zishan is an 8 year old boy living with Autism, anxiety and a sensory processing disorder.
Zishan is most comfortable when he receives adequate sensory stimulation from his environment, and even better when it comes from music and/or rhythm. His carers want to help him increase his communication, participation, emotional and sensory regulation through the use of music.
Thanks to our donors, Variety was able to give Zishan a special keyboard with weighted keys, which will help him advance his motor skills.
Due to his auditory sensitivity, the keyboard – which is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) – will allow Zishan to respond appropriately through balanced sound at any volume level, therefore allowing him to improve his communication going forward.
We can’t wait to hear all about your progress Zishan – we hope you enjoy your new keyboard!
