Music therapy is awesome! It's very stimulating and we have lots of fun together as a group. Even my friends that don't talk love to use the instruments to express themselves and tell us how they feel.
Music therapy provides treatment in a non-threatening setting between people and/or individuals and their environment, facilitating relationships, learning, self expression, and communication.
It helps to capture and maintain a child's attention and proves to be highly motivating for them.
Music therapy can stimulate kids in positive ways that increase their social participation, and enable those without verbal language to communicate and express themselves using instruments.
Since music is processed in both hemispheres of the brain, it can also assist in the development of verbal communication, as well as speech and language skills.
