Synchrony is a music therapy platform that helps parents and children with autism develop intimacy and promote understanding with each other through improvised music play. Bridging the social-emotional gap

A social-emotional barrier exists between parents and children with autism, often leading to dejection and decreased self-efficacy for both parent and child.

Improvised play in music therapy, a process that simulates mother/infant social play, helps to bridge that gap. However, the technical nature of improvised music play can intimidate parents from practicing it alone with their child.
