Details:
Music Therapy uses active music making to work on non-musical goals. Some of the skills your family member will be working on are the following:

  • Increasing opportunities for self-expression
  • Increasing both receptive and expressive communication
  • Increasing self-awareness and self-confidence
  • Improving motor skills through active music making
  • Increasing avenues for academic and life skills
  • Increasing opportunities for socialization

The individuals signed up for the Monday Music Makers and Tuesday Tune Takers, will be actively making music, playing, and singing together. There will be breaks where the group will go outside for fresh air and to stretch their legs and have a snack. In addition, we will occasionally be making instrument crafts to take home and having as much fun as possible doing so! There are limited spaces in this day program (8-10 individuals per day). Individuals need to be independent of 1:1 need. If they are unable to attend without assistance, some individuals may require a parent or staff to stay with them, although we will try to encourage as much independence as possible!
