The right note: Music a key connector for autistic kids

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Making music isn’t just fun and games for Hudson and Memphis Hueneke.

Strumming a guitar, blowing train whistles and listening to lyrics have helped the brothers learn to work together, stay on task, express themselves and follow instructions.

The skills are paramount for all preschoolers, but are especially important for the brothers. Memphis, 3, was diagnosed with autism a year ago, and doctors believe that Hudson, 2, also may be demonstrating traits of the developmental disorder.
