On November 5, 2015, Autism and Music had the opportunity to spread its message of acceptance and unity (“Somos uno”) with a packed house of attendees at the 2015 TEDxFIU event. Founder Patricia Kayser was chosen from amongst hundreds of applicants to speak at this year’s event and share her experiences loving and accepting the special capabilities of her brother, Chris, who was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at age three. She shared how music had provided her with the means to reach Chris and how it had become her passion. With Chris at her side, Patricia played a song she wrote for him, “I am Your Voice” and audience members got to see the life-changing effects of music on both Chris and Patricia.
