A Syrian doctor has developed an unusual music therapy to treat conditions like autism, depression, anxiety, and speech impediments in children. Dr. Waseem Kotoub brought his method to Syria in 2006, using music and musical instruments to help induce behavioral changes in children and develop their motor functions. One is Mayas, a 14-year-old Downs Syndrome patient who refused until recently to have his hair cut or allow anyone to approach his head. Now, music has made him much more responsive to his surroundings. More information about the IWPR Syria multimedia project can be found here: This multimedia piece was produced during an IWPR workshop for young Syrian journalists held in Damascus in November 2009.
