Music-based therapies are often provided to children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders. Many parents report that their children with autism enjoy musical activities, and show more positive interactions with others through greater eye contact, smiling and speaking.

At WeeZee World, we agree! We have a Groove Grove, featuring keyboards, electric guitars, drums and more as well as a Karoake Room!

About a third of children who have autism also have symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, according to a study released today.

Introduction

Hi! My name is Louise Weadock-Rowe… friends call me, Ouisie (pronounced “WeeZee”). I’m a Registered Child Psychiatric Nurse. I worked with the team that researched & defined behaviors at Johns Hopkins Hospital that today are Signs/Symptoms of the most extreme Sensory Integration Disorder, AUTISM.

In 1985, I founded ACCESS Nursing & Healthcare Services a large regional provider of Temporary Healthcare personnel. As the company was growing into to the largest & most diverse provider of healthcare personnel on the East Coast; In 1993, I gave birth to my second child, Shannon. She reacted differently to her world than her older brother. Her inconsistent, volatile & tantrumatic responses to food, touch, sound, & people turned our home upside-down! We were referred to Specialists for her “Autistic-like behaviors.” After her diagnosis of a severe Sensory Integration disorder, I found myself running from one type of therapy or tutoring session to another. My day turned from Executive meetings with Hospitals to searching for a Silver Bullet that would return our world to “normal”.

Upon closer inspection of what was happening in these therapy sessions, I realized that most spent 75% of their time “desensitizing” Shannon through multi-sensory gross motor exercises that would wear down the underlying defensiveness of her Central Nervous System so that she could LEARN!!

I continued to observe what was working and why. As a parent, I realized, I had control over what was happening in Shannon’s World and how she could be successful in it. Desensitizing exercises that enhanced learning are fun and could be done in our home!! Together, we could make all those therapy hours much more productive! Shannon could arrive at school and therapies “desensitized” and ready to LEARN! So I changed our approach to this Disorder.

Rather than Shannon having an isolating diagnosis, we turned our home into a desensitizing FUN ZONE for all kids in our neighborhood! Our house was always full of kids. Shannon was creating the Sensory Zones and all the kids were in our home “Rough Housing” their way to better academic, social &
athletic performance!!

Today, ACCESS Nursing & Healthcare Services continues to be the most respected Large Regional provider of Healthcare personnel in the northeast. My kids are in college and Shannon (with her brother Paul), through their academic Internships have translated their childhood home experience into a play world for all kids and their families. They named it after me! Our goal is that every child when challenged by their world; leaves WeeZee confidently saying, “YES, I Can”!
