Early Intervention Group (Ages 3-5)

Small group sessions that focus on foundational skills necessary for participation in full inclusion and special education academic classes

Goal areas include the following:

Self-regulation—being able to sit in a chair independently for an appropriate amount of time

Social interaction—working together with peers to build meaningful relationships and collaboration with projects and experiences

Pre-school concepts—matching and identifying colors, letters, numbers and objects

Fine and Gross Motor—palmar and pincer grasp, locomotion in and out of the classroom, and hand-eye coordination

Communication—expressive and receptive language skills, eye contact, gestures/body language, sign language, and tone quality of voice

Therapeutic Music Interventions used to facilitate goal achievement:

Functional instrument play: Working together or independently playing an instrument to improve social and motor skills.

Movement to music: Using dance and yoga to improve social, motor, and communication skills.

Singing: Using call-and-response, performing, and group singing to improve self-regulation, social, academic, motor, and communication skills.

Sensory exploration: Using a variety of instruments and tools that improve self-regulation and motor skills
