Description of Service
Allows parents to be involved in early arts interventions for their infants and toddlers with special needs, along with typically developing children. Action and purposeful movement in a relational context appear to be the building blocks of developmental change and are of relevance for cognitive change. In this case, the structure is musical and has the advantage of flexibility. The capabilities of each child, no matter how limited, are brought into the mutual realm of musical relationship with the parent and therapist, are open to variety and, thereby, development. Music has demonstrated success with this population in facilitating socialization, self-expression and language development.
