Learning Disability and Music Therapy
Music therapy is widely recognised as a highly effective health intervention. You don’t need to have any musical skills to benefit from music therapy. It’s not about being able to play an instrument or learning new musical skills. It’s about making a connection and enabling people to communicate.
The main outcomes of music therapy for adults with Learning, Developmental and Physical Disabilities are:
Communication Skills: improving verbal and non-verbal communication through singing, vocalising and instrumental play;
Social skills: developing eye contact, turn-taking and interaction through shared music-making;
Cognitive skills: improving focus, shared attention and processing;
Emotional needs: providing a supported and accessible outlet for feelings, developing self-expression and self-esteem;
Physical skills: developing movement and motor skills.
