West Music is proud to introduce a program designed to meet the needs of children with autism and other special needs in Cedar Rapids/Marion area. This music therapy group will contain 3-4 children and meet 1 time a week to work on a variety of goal areas. Open to preelementary and elementary school-aged children. Groups will be determined based on the age and needs of each child to ensure that individual needs are met.

Based on the success of similar groups at our other locations the Marion West Music store is proud to introduce a group designed to meet the needs of children with Autism and other special needs within the Cedar Rapids/Marion area.  

To best meet each individual’s needs this group will be limited to 3-4 individuals.  Each weekly session will consist of a variety of experiences from singing and active instrument play to movement to music.  These experiences will be designed to address the following goal areas:

•         Social Skills (sharing, appropriate peer interaction, and coping mechanisms)

•         Pre-Academic Skills (letters, colors, numbers, shapes, animals)

•         Communication Skills (expressive, receptive, responding to questions)

For more information regarding this program please contact Lindsey Wilhelm, MA, MT-BC, NMT, (319) 389-4074 or lwihelm@westmusic.com
