MUSIC THERAPY AND LEARNING DIFFICULTIES

How music can alter the experience of those with additional learning needs such as those with: Autism, Downs Syndrome, Global Developmental Delay, and Dyspraxia.

I would work with the individual in a playful way at whatever level the patient was comfortable with.  I would be looking at using music and fun to address the issues or concerns presented to me at referral, to determine goals. My  focus would always be on a safe, caring therapeutic relationship - within which progress can be made and personal growth is respectfully nurtured.
