How Little Champs can

help your child

One compelling reason for the rapid integration of music into autism therapy is its unique ability to stimulate both hemispheres of the brain, setting it apart from other modalities. Our certified music therapist addresses a diverse range of psychological, social, physical, cognitive, language, and behavioral challenges.

Using the power of music, our therapist employs songs and instruments to support cognitive activities, fostering self-awareness and enhancing interpersonal relationships. Encouraging communicative behavior and interactions with others is a significant focus, as children with autism often struggle in this area. Introducing musical instruments into therapy allows these children to form initial bonds with the object, subsequently opening up avenues for interaction with others who engage with the same instruments. This creative approach facilitates gradual progress, making it an effective tool for children dealing with autism.

What to expect in Music Therapy

In the music therapy sessions at Little Champs, we focus on building essential communication skills while incorporating elements of relaxation and motivation. Our therapists understand the significance of gradual skill development and introduce activities such as singing, dancing, listening, and playing musical instruments one step at a time. With patience and a nurturing learning environment, your child will have the opportunity to explore and develop these new skills at their own pace, creating a safe and supportive space for growth.

Benefits of Music Therapy for Autism

Music therapy provides valuable assistance to individuals with autism in the following ways:

  • Enhancing language comprehension skills: Our therapists use songs relevant to specific activities to aid in understanding word meanings.
  • Encouraging speech development: Through music, we incorporate syllable and consonant-vowel sounds to bolster language skills, helping individuals grasp word pronunciation.
  • Addressing sensory issues: Music therapy stimulates senses, improves focus, and redirects self-stimulating behaviors towards socially appropriate actions.
  • Fostering two-way communication: The therapy focuses on building social skills, encouraging peer interaction, and promoting meaningful conversations.
  • Facilitating self-expression and emotional response: By engaging in music, dance, movement, noise-making, or singing, individuals with autism can effectively express their emotions.
  • Reducing monotone speech: The inclusion of singing in therapy sessions provides examples of rhyming, word pronunciation, and speech flow accompanied by music, which aids in minimizing monotonic speech patterns.
