News from our Music Therapy Sessions

5 May 2018

Amber uses our Hub facility and is part time resident in our Futures Accomodation. She reguarly attends Music Therapy sessions at the Life Skills Centre. During these sessions Amber works with Olivia & Diarmuid (Music Therapy Session Leaders). 

"Amber has shown improved focus and concentration during recent sessions, particularly when we are close to her and singing.  During these moments there is a significant increase in eye contact and this seems to have a calming effect for her.  Further to this, when gaps are left for her during songs, she can use her voice to join in the musical interaction.  During more lively moments, there has also been an increase in arm and in particular leg movement."
