An anonymous donor gave music therapy nonprofit A Place To Be enough money to make music therapy sessions available to any family in Loudoun County Public Schools for free.
For families of children with special needs, being stuck indoors and adhering to social distancing policies can be a challenge.
Tom Sweitzer, director of A Place To Be, said music therapy can be calming and helpful to those who are anxious or high energy during these times. The nonprofit normally holds in-person sessions but has since adapted to hosting sessions online because of the novel coronavirus outbreak.
