Supportive Family Class
All Children are Musical! Supportive Family Classes for Special Needs Families
Families with children with special needs often
find that Music Together® classes fill their need for a
welcoming, community-based experience the whole family can enjoy. In many
cases, the Music Together family class format is perfect. However, some
families may find a smaller, more intimate classroom environment to be a better
fit. These classes are an extension of the Music Together
philosophy to accept and include all participants, regardless of any
apparent ability or disability.
family classes are for children with health challenges and developmental
disabilities as well as their traditionally developing siblings and friends.
These classes follow the same curriculum as our regular mixed-ages classes, but
their smaller class size and relaxed pacing can make them ideal for children with
special needs. Supportive
family classes offer support and information that may be specifically helpful
to parents and caregivers of children with special needs. They’re also a great
support for siblings.
- Enrollment capped at seven
- Class lead by Carol Ann Blank, Ph.D., LCAT, LPC, MT-BC
Manager of Research and
Special Needs Services for Music Together Worldwide
- Each session is 10-weeks long
and the classes are 45 minutes in length.
- Families also receive unlimited makeups
during the 10-week session, and while we don’t offer more than one
Supportive Family class, it is still perfectly appropriate to attend a
Mixed Aged Music Together class as a make-up.
- We will request that
you fill out an information form in order for us to gain a better
understanding of your child’s current developmental need areas. Answers to
these questions will be taken into consideration when planning sessions to
ensure a more productive, focused group.
