Sensory and Song: A Musical Therapy ExperienceProject led by Mighty Children's Museum
About the project.
This Cause Connector project supports music therapy for children and families in Chillicothe, Ohio and surrounding communities in Hocking, Pike, and Ross counties.
The Sensory and Song program at the Mighty Children’s Museum makes music therapy accessible for children and families. The program will support livestreams of the Museum’s weekly music time for families unable to attend in person; allow for evening and weekend sessions to support families with special needs; and facilitate at-home therapy kits with links to access music, a DIY instrument activity, and ways to target feelings and emotions. School aged children will be the most impacted by this project.
FAO staff comments.
Music Therapy is known to be a great way for children and adults of all ages to process and explore emotions. The Mighty Children’s Museum of Chillicothe wants to make sure that those unable to attend in person events can benefit from music therapy programming during the pandemic. Therapy kits would include materials and activities for families to do together as well as provide online materials to compliment each lesson.
