Special Needs Summer Music Program in Watertown
Connecticut Music Therapy will host a summer session of Musical Connections, an exciting two-week summer program filled with music-centered activities specifically designed for children and young adults with special needs. Led by board certified music therapists, participants will spend their mornings engaged in music making, instrument play, creative movement and dancing, song writing, singing, arts and crafts and much more.
The purpose of this program is to promote social skills, verbal and nonverbal communication and creative expression, and to develop new friendships in an open, energetic and supportive environment. There are programs for two age groups: ages 5 to 11 and ages 12 to 18. The program will be held Mondays through Thursdays, August 6 to 16, from 9am to noon.
Connecticut Music Therapy Services is based in Watertown with a secondary office in Fairfield, but their skilled team of music therapists travels all over the state to work with clients of all ages.
