Mommy and Me

Participating in a Mommy & Me group experience is a great way to start incorporating music into your child’s life. For children, age birth to three, this program is designed to promote speech and language, fine and gross motor development and socialization skills, while encouraging joyful bonds within the family.

Early intervention for special needs children is important in the development of language and fine motor skills, self-awareness and the forming of interpersonal relationships. In particular, early intervention in children with speech problems, impaired motor functioning and the varying degrees of behavior disorders that accompany developmental delays is important for language development, self-awareness and forming relationships throughout their lives. Children of any age can benefit from the use of improvisation, interactive music-making and music skill-building to increase their attention span and develop fine and gross motor coordination. Skills such as sharing, turn-taking, listening, and learning the names of colors, animals, body parts and clothing improve.

For non-verbal children or children with language delays or communication disorders, music and art provide a way to address psychological issues. In sessions with a music and art, a relationship develops between the music therapist or art therpaist and their client. Through the therapy process, the family will discover new ways of relating to their children with special needs, while gaining appreciation of their unique gifts.

Groups are run based on interest. If you want to participate in a Mommy & Me group, contact us!

WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING

Dear Miss Karen, As you know, I auditioned for the play Honk, Jr. at my school. Guess what -- I got the lead role of Ugly! I think all of my work in music and theatre at Arts for Healing really helped me do a good job at the auditions. So thank you for helping me so much over the past 8 years. I'm really excited. Love, Brian "Music can always be there when you need it."
