Theresa known all over the world for her musical work in the areas of Autism, ADHD, Pain and Stress Management, Insomnia, Massage Therapy, Hospice and Birthing. One main focus these days is in bringing relief to families affected by Autism. Below is a Link to a sample of her CD that was created especially for those with Autism. It is available in a Basic or Personalized Version. Hear a sample of the Personalized Version below.
How often does your child hear their name spoken in a harsh tone? How often is their name used in conjunction with correction or reprimand as opposed to words of love and encouragement?
International flutist & vocalist Theresa Griffith offers custom CDs with your child's name sung in the first song and their photo on the CD's face and cover. Watch the change in your child's behavior and ability to learn and sleep after using their special CD for just one week! You will find them asking for it before bedtime and the first thing when they get home from school. Upon receiving his personalized CD, the child pictured above said "Mom! I'm famous!" Another child said, "Mom, am I on YouTube now?"
In 1998 Theresa recorded a CD called Utopia for use with ADD/ADHD and the results were phenomenal. She recorded it at 60 beats per minute (bpm) which lowers the heart rate and blood pressure, thereby bringing slower and deeper breathing patterns anda peaceful calming effect which facilitates sleep as well as the ability to focus and learn. With the Autism CD, My Peaceful Place, Theresa takes another strategic step further by recording at 55bpm and including personalized lyrics designed to touch the child's emotional well being by bringing healing to the perceptions of who they are and confirming over and over within their personal song that they are not only Ok, they are unique, accepted and special.
The Basic Autism CD is called My Peaceful Place while the Personalized Version is titled with the child's name (Ex. David's Song). Both are a full hour long. The Basic CD has generalized words of love and edification while the personalized version is filled with your child's own characteristics, and specific names of those who love them. They are both perfect for use anytime there is a need for calm. When used at bedtime these encouraging and affirming lyrics will renew the child's mind in who they are and that they are loved. This labor of love has the potential to bring healthy emotional changes to your child’s life and peace to the entire family. Theresa's other music can also be used to help bring a deep sense of calm to everyone in the home. It is especially helpful at dinner time because it has the potential to promote digestion based on studies of music recorded in this manner..

Commendations on Theresa's Work
"We just received the special Autism CD you did for our daughter Joy. I put it into her cd player in her bedroom she started to sing to it then signed for me to leave her alone. She calmly sat on her bed and peacefully rocked to the heavenly sounds. I watched her via the key hole in her door and she absolutely loves it! Thank you for sharing your beautiful gift Theresa!"
TEACHER FOR OKLAHOMA
"I play your music every day at nap time and music/ self expression times. The other day one of my students, a very bright, three year old boy said “ Teacher, will you tell that flute lady on that CD, I love her playing? It makes me feel better.” He gets upset if I forget your Bliss cd. I was out sick this past Monday And he was in tears saying “They forgot to play the cd for us!” - R.D., OK
CHILD'S EMOTIONAL STATE
"Just wanted to add my comments on the "therapeutic effects" of your music. We have had a 3 yr old from an abusive family situation staying with us this past week. This little one had intense anger and defiance issues when she arrived last friday and her mother said she has nightmares every night and throws up often. Every night wee put her to bed with the same routine: stories, pray God's blessing while playing one of your CDs. She falls asleep peacefully with your music and hasn't had one nightmare and only one slight throw-up incident all week. Besides that the level of peace and restfulness in her behavior has increased." - Bob, MA
"My autistic 20 year old daughter just informed me that she didn't wake up one time last night after using your Utopia CD to go to sleep. I let her borrow it because she is always getting up during the night, which wakes me up. She specifically asked to borrow it. She never does things like that! She has hardly ever slept through the night in her entire life! So thank you!!!" - Rose, OK
"I'd really been struggling with test anxiety lately, so, I was wondered if Theresa's CDs would help me focus. I asked my teacher for permission to use a portable cd player in class while taking my quizzes, and omg it worked! I went from near failing every quiz/test to getting 90-100! Just made a 99 on my 4 page test last week because of it. Thanks again!" - R.R., CA
"I use your music in my classroom for reading and nap time with my children with Autism and ADHD and LOVE IT! It has the effect of a warm blanket bringing such a beautiful sense of calm to everyone. Thanks!" - P.G., MA
