Individual Sessions: Individual sessions designed to meet the development needs of the client. Therapy classes follow a structured plan with goals that work in tandem with behavior plans and Individualized Education Plans.
Group: Music classes designed to meet the developmental needs of children ages 4-18. Groups are separated by ages. The maximum number of children per group is 6 to ensure that everyone receives adequate instruction.
Sibling: Autism affects more than just the child. Don’t forget about their siblings! Sibling only classes allow siblings to interact with other siblings also affected by autism. A great opportunity to vent and learn how to cope with others.
Our Rhythm: A mommy and me style music class designed to meet the developmental needs of newborns and infants through interaction with a parent or caregiver.
