About two years ago, our foster daughter came to us approximately 3 years behind in development, she was almost 6. We began Music Therapy a few weeks after her placement with us and watched her blossom. Her favorite part of the week was “Rock and Roll” with Ms. Megan. She learned to follow multistep directions, sequence events, retell stories and increased her motor skills during music therapy. After 15 months, we ended music therapy. Our little girl had gained 2.5 years (30 months!) of skills in 15 months. She blossomed with the tender loving care and skilled interventions music therapy provided her. We’re incredibly grateful to Ms. Megan for everything she did for her and our family.
The cow said neigh and the pig said oink? Yup, you read that correctly. The cat did say hello and the farmer said moo but have you ever seen a bear combing his hair or a whale with a polka dotted tail down by the bay? I sure have! I love using books or song books in music therapy sessions. Books such as “The Cow Said Neigh” by Rory Feek and “Down by the Bay” by Raffi can be used to work on so many more skills than just reading.
