(Shlomi Hason)
Eitan is diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and has complex needs. His main difficulties are to develop social relationships and to communicate with others around him. For a long time Eitan had his hands tucked away inside his shirt and refused to use them. In music therapy he was refusing to use his hands to play on any of the instruments, but was finding ways to tell the therapist that he wished to hear him play the piano or the guitar.
