Musical Playground (Ages 5-12)

Goal areas may include:

Therapeutic music interventions include:

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

Movement to music: Using dance and yoga to improve social and regulatory skills

Singing: Using call-and-response, performing, and group singing to improve regulatory, social, and communication skills
