Arts For Healing offers individual and group music and art therapy to public and private school programs. A trained music therapist or art therapist will meet with teachers and administrators to explore specific needs within the special education population, and design a program that will work well within the department, as well as help students participate in mainstream music, theater or art activities within the school curriculum.
We also offer training for music and art educators wishing to engage more effectively with individuals with special needs, The programs provide participants with an increased awareness, knowledge and improved technique to improve their work with individuals with special needs. These classes are pen to all practitioners and those interested in learning more about working with children and adolescents with learning and developmental disabilities such as autism spectrum disorder, down syndrome, pervasive developmental disorders and other neurological dysfunctions. These classes can be provided at our center, or on-site at your school.
We also provide training for special education teachers looking to make better use of music and art in their classrooms.
Arts for Healing is an approved Connecticut Continuing Education Provider and as such CEU Certificates will be provided for all attendees completing our programs.
