Music Therapy & Autism: Arts for Healing’s Karen Nisenson

Arts for Healing Celebrates 10 Years!

One of the 32 people profiled in my book Everything We Needed to Know About Business, We Learned Playing Music was Karen Nisenson, founder of Arts for Healing, a creative arts therapy center that treats people with developmental disabilities ranging from down syndrome, autism, and Alzheimer’s through the application of music and arts therapy.

The non-profit recently celebrated their 10th anniversary. Karen raised 5 children as a single mother and somehow still managed to start this wonderful organization in New Canaan, CT. Congratulations to Karen and her staff for their success!
