Program for Students on the Autism Spectrum

The Boston Conservatory Program for Students on the Autism Spectrum is a first-of-its-kind conservatory program that pairs students on the autism spectrum with Boston Conservatory music education graduate students for weekly lessons. Students, ages 9 and up, also receive support from a “consult team” that includes a music therapist, a speech pathologist, special educators, as well as professional musicians and music educators with a diagnosis on the autism spectrum.  For more information:

The Boston Conservatory Program for Students on the Autism Spectrum was the brainchild of the Autism Higher Education Foundation (AHEF) and was co-founded by AHEF and The Boston Conservatory in 2007.  The program has been supported in part by grants from The Braitmayer Foundation, the Esther B. Kahn Charitable Foundation, and the A.C. Ratshesky Foundation.
