About the event
We have contracted with one of the most respected and well-known music therapist in Washtenaw county! Life Dynamic Music Therapy is expanding their practice adding more music therapists. Music therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. Music therapy interventions can be designed to:
- Promote wellness
- Manage stress
- Alleviate pain
- Express feelings
- Enhance memories
- Improve communication
- Promote physical rehabilitation
In our case as parents with those that have developmental disabilities, it helps our kids learn emotional regulation. Music therapists may use drumming interventions to work on bilateral coordination (use of both arms), singing exercises to improve articulation, adapted music lessons to improve fine motor skills and cognition, and a variety of other music-based interventions.
The second half of ART WORKX includes a fun cognitively appropriate art project that may take a few weeks to complete. Each art project will focus on improving cognitive skills, motor-function, self-esteem, self-awareness, and social skills.
Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity so it won't disappear!!!
