How SINGing is important
Singing, speaking or reading helps Chevonne develop her language skills. Singing has also been shown to reduce stress in children.

Singing regular songs or a lullaby helps to soothe Chevonne when she's upset and lets her know when a regular event is coming, such as a daytime sleep.
