We are delighted to welcome Leslie Wrenn who will be leading our Virtual Music Therapy sessions!
During our virtual group music therapy session, we will have fun making music while working on goals in communication, vocalisation, choice making, movement, and more! We will use live music, Lámh, and seated physical movement to learn and play. With the group format, children and parents will have the opportunity to see and virtually engage with their friends.
Who is it suitable for?
Places are available for new term which is open to boys and girls aged 6 months to 3 years.
Virtual Music Therapy takes place Thursday mornings from 10:30am – 11:00am. The term starts Thursday September 10th.
To book your child in or to make an enquiry please contact Leslie via email at email@example.com .
The sessions will be free of charge as The Down Syndrome Centre is currently subsidising the activity.
Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
