Our goal is to provide a path for children with autism to learn
words through music and become capable of independent speech.
We help children sing what they cannot say
Most children with autism can SING what they cannot SAY
Our research shows that music and language are acquired in different parts of the brain.
In autism, the language centers are impaired but the music centers are generally not.
Sing to Say Foundations uses music to bridge to the language centers.
We are building a vocabulary and music is the teacher.

“For her, Sing to Say been a springboard to language. She gone from zero vocabulary – it has definitely increased her vocabulary. I didn’t think she was going to get all the words and then, you know, start saying complete sentences.
This app is amazing… for “V” to go from nothing to this….really, it’s huge strides. “
