What is Voices Together?

Voices Together is a 501(c)(3) organization with a specialized and evidence-based program that has produced transformational outcomes in central North Carolina community groups and special education classrooms in seven public school districts since 2007.

How We Are Different:

- We offer new ways to speak to, listen to, and understand your child.

- We offer new ways for your child to build their self-esteem and confidence.

- We offer a natural and spontaneous structure, so each child feels safe and successful as they grow.

- We offer new ways for children to understand themselves and express their emotions.

"Since Riley began Voices Together, he has made progress in many areas of social development and communication. Today, instead of succumbing to a meltdown, he tells us, 'I am frustrated.' After his first day at a summer day camp, he told us excitedly about how his 'friend from Voices Together' was attending the same program. We have noted marked increases in eye contact, initiation of conversations, patience in waiting for his turn to speak, and many other areas which have long been a struggle for him." - Parent

Creating New Pathways for Connection

- Do you wonder what your child is thinking?
- Do you want new ways to understand your child and for them to understand you?
- Do you feel like you cannot communicate effectively?
- Do you wonder if you are doing things "right" with raising a child with autism?

"This has helped him get social skills. It's helped him to talk. It's helped him to tell me, for example, that his throat hurts. He is able to express himself. Simple things like communicating how he feels. It has helped him know how to behave. It teaches him to take turns. To me, this class is just as important as his doctor's appointments." Parent, Wake County

This year, Voices Together is talking to parents about a potential pilot for exploring new tools to use with their children in the home environment. If you are interested in taking a survey to provide feedback for this, please click here.

Best Practice

Voices Together music therapy model, VOICSS™, has been coined a best practice. Seamlessly integrating music and language development, our program promotes critical communication skills while helping develop student’s social/emotional education.

"I believe that this program is an innovative educational model that can be used in all classrooms. I have seen students in special education classrooms increase vital skills from one session to the next. This is a best practice in education."

-Jan Riggsbee, Ed.D, Duke University
