Media Details and Descriptions


The Full Spectrum Birthday Song (or Why Just Happy?)—an original song CD—uses the universally shared phenomenon of birth to say all feelings are valid, ever present and worth celebratory embrace. The song provides ready expression for adults wishing to expand their repertoire of unconditionally loving gestures that include entry-level, social-emotional concepts for children, students and social service community program recipients. Contact ELA  for additional endorsements, social or cultural program application, study guide info and for group discounts.

“Just as a point of information, I reviewed the CD for the family partnership program in my car on the way to an event, my 9 year old grandson (who I am raising) loves it! He can listen to it over and over again for, literally, hours...thanks so much for your generosity.”
