Event description
A fun, developmental, music activity for children with additional needs.

About this event

This workshop is a fun, developmental, music activity for pre-school children in general & more specifically children with additional needs. As music stimulates both hemispheres of the brain, it generally helps to promote & encourage communication building, cognitive stimulation, relaxation & positive mood enhancing.

This event will take place at Lucan Library.

A parent/guardian needs to stay with the child and help participate in the workshop. Please book a ticket for each child AND each adult attending.

Numbers are very limited, so if you cannot attend, please be sure to cancel your ticket either by Eventbrite or by contacting Lucan Library on 01-6216422 or lucan@sdublincoco.ie. Thank you.

Music is a particularly positive experience for Autistic children who struggle to understand social & emotional cues from other people's actions/ words.

Research shows that children on the Autism spectrum respond to music & so by introducing each element of the workshop.:

Singing (nursery rhymes/familiar tunes to develop language , the premise being that children learn songs & rhymes before they can utter words.)

Dancing (for sensory stimulation & to enhance motor skills)

Listening songs ( for relaxation & focus & repetition to stimulate language & cognitive skills)

Instrument play (the social dynamic of bonding with the instrument.

We can create a relaxing, gentle play environment where the child & their family can bond in a healthy way thus helping the autistic child to relate to their family & to others.)
