About Sound Therapy:
Sound-based therapy involves the use of sound vibration that impacts the body using special equipment, programs, modified music, and/or specific tones/beats, the need for which is identified with appropriate testing.

About Chromosome Imbalances:
Chromosome Imbalances occur when an abnormal number of chromosomes results from a mistake called nondisjunction that occurs in the production of eggs or sperm. The paired copies of a particular chromosome do not separate at cell division. The individuals with chromosomal imbalances usually have medical problems due to the imbalance in gene products expressed from that chromosome. Chromosome Imbalances are seen with Down syndrome, Williams syndrome, Isodicentric 15, Turner syndrome, and more. (http://www.nads.org)
