Henlopen Music Therapy Services has been quite busy these days! Two weeks ago, I began facilitating my 1st 'Music and Movement' group for young adults on the Autism Spectrum. After 2 positive sessions and with the help of the hard-working staff at Autism Delaware, I can safely say that the experience has been a positive success! Through recreationally-based music activities, I am helping these individuals improve on social skills, life skills, and vocational task skills. We have several sessions in the making and I am excited for everyone!!
On an even more exciting note, I have been invited to speak at Delaware Technical and Community College (Owen's Campus) to speak about music therapy, my practice, and how to become a board-certified music therapist for a group of students. The presentation will be more detailed then my previous DTTC presentation and will involve some mock MT sessions involving recorded music as well as instruments. I could not be any more excited!!
