This is Audio Integration Therapy (AIT) week here at Matt Knits.
For the next two weeks (starting today), Matthew will be listening to music (he will have to tolerate headphones for 30 minutes twice a day for 10 days) from an occupational therapist, who uses a specialized CD Player that plays specific tracks with different frequencies. These frequencies are to help Matthew cope with major transitional changes, such as graduating from high school and then entering a job training program the same month.
Many people with autism frequently have problems dealing with social interactions and activities. This training is also to help Matthew comprehend the environment that he is in and to also make him more expressive in his social skills.

It's the fourth of July here in America.
Matt is having a wonderful time spending the evening with his grandparents and watching the fireworks at Tempe Town Lake on TV.
Here is a wonderful 4th of July hat to keep up the holiday cheer!
For all of our American Internet users, we at Matt Knits wish you a wonderful and safe holiday!
