Chimes for Autism

More about Chimes for Autism below:

The Story of the Woodstock Chimes for Autism™

The Woodstock Chimes for Autism was inspired by several uplifting stories shared by loyal Woodstock Chimes customers. One story about a young boy, Tyler, stands out.

Tyler has autism and lives near Toronto, Canada. By far one of Woodstock Chimes' biggest fans, Tyler's musical acuity is so strong that when a musically-tuned Woodstock Chime is rung, he can identify it by name. To honor Tyler - and to support all those living with autism - Woodstock Chimes created the Woodstock Chimes for Autism, with 100% of the wholesale after-tax profits from this chime going to autism treatment and research.

Production Note: In the video, Jamey Wolff, co-founder of the Center for Spectrum Services, says autism effects one in 55 - she was referring to the fact that autism effects one in 55 boys (it effects one in 88 children). Update: since the interview, these figures were revised to 1 in 42 boys and 1 in 68 children.



Mozart and the Woodstock Chimes for Autism™

One aspect of autism is hypersensitivity to sound.¹ Studies have found that music therapy can assist with some of the challenges attributed to autism.² Mozart's music, in particular, has been a blessing for some individuals living with autism.³ The Woodstock Chimes for Autism features a specially designed clapper, so its soothing tones ring more gently. The chime is musically-tuned to a melody from Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21.
