Thread Name: Music and the mentally handicapped
Subject: RE: Music and the mentally handicapped
A family who has been a member of our dulcimer club for maybe 6 years has a son who is mentally handicapped. It's been very good for him because the other members treat him just like they do everyone else and it's something that he can participate in along with his brother (who is a very gifted musician with well above-average intelligence) and parents. He plays the lap dulcimer and the autoharp. He also loves square dancing and is pretty good at it.
