Music therapy for children with hearing loss NYC
Center for Hearing and Communication
50 Broadway, 6th Fl. NYC
8-week program begins May 29, 2015, 11AM
Meets weekly, concluding July 24
A limited number of spaces are still available for our new workshop, It’s Music to My Ears – a free 8-week music therapy program for infants and young children (up to 5 years) with all degrees of hearing loss.
Music helps nurture young minds, particularly in the development of speech, language, and listening skills. For children who are deaf and hard of hearing, auditory stimulation through music plays an important role in facilitating pitch, intonation, phonetics, and rhythm.
It’s Music to My Ears is a joint music therapy presentation of the Center for Hearing and Communication (CHC) and Music Together of Fort Greene/Clinton Hill. Facilitating the sessions are Alison Yeager, CHC speech-language pathologist, and Jelena Karanovic, a Music Together certified instructor.
Developmental areas include:
- Music learning
- Speech and language skills
- Cognitive ability
- Listening skills
- Social development
- Motor development
