Success with Affinity Therapy

The following is a special needs program update from Berkshire Hills Blog. You may also click here to read the original article on the program’s website.

Much like many students at BHMA, journalist Ron Suskind’s autistic son Owen made tremendous strides in language and social skills through a personal affinity. While our students learn through their love of music, Owen found success in studying  animated Disney features. Through making connections to characters and situations presented in the films, Owen learned to better convey his thoughts and emotions — he has continued to use this “affinity therapy” into young adulthood.
