For All Ages
These small groups will focus on a variety of goal areas and are individualized for each child participant. Social, motor, speech and cognitive skills will be addressed through the use of instrument play, singing, movement to music, and peer interaction. Socialization skills are addressed throughout the program incorporating proper greetings/farewells, peer interaction, attention span tasks and direction following. Through dance, movement and instrument playing, children will utilize and enhance fine and gross motor skills each session. Much emphasis will be placed on rhythm, which aids in the development of appropriate motor coordination. Receptive and expressive language skills are worked into each session through listening and command following tasks, singing and instrument play. As with motor skills, rhythm work with vocal tasks will also work towards speech development and improvement. Sessions are tailored and adapted to meet the needs of all group members.
Group size is limited to 8 children in order to allow individualized treatment in a therapeutic setting, and all sessions are led by Board Certified Music Therapist Leslie Jones, MMT, MT-BC
