Music, Dance and Art Therapy

A unique therapeutic and creative arts program featuring creative music, art and dance therapy tailored specifically to the unique interests and needs of individuals on the autism spectrum. Exploration of music, art and dance can facilitate personal growth for people on the spectrum in many areas including gross and fine motor skills, speech, and language through song, memory and mental agility, social skills, confidence, and self- expression. Individual and group sessions are available to the students on campus as well as the wider autism community – both young and old.  All classes are taught by certified therapists or instructors.
