This month we welcome special guest CJ Shiloh to the Music Therapy Round Table podcast. Ms. CJ, as her piano students call her, runs the blog The Musical Autist, where she shares her thoughts and ideas on Neurodiversity and her vision to give all people with special needs equal access to the fine arts.
