Shane Gavigan, a sixth grader at Roland A. Chatterton School, was recently featured in Newsday’s “LI Acts of Kindness” section. The story focuses on Shane’s initially challenging, yet ultimately rewarding transition to remote music therapy sessions as an 11-year-old boy on the autism spectrum. 

For nearly a year, Shane has been working with Rebecca Auty, 22, a music therapy student at the Rebecca Center Music Therapy Program at Molloy College. Ms. Auty, a Chatterton graduate, shared how their student mentor relationship flourished during the Zoom sessions. Enjoy the story here.
