You can see how attending these sessions regularly is so beneficial for children at all levels - socially, emotionally as well as his involvement with music which has really started to take off. He has joined the school choir and chooses to go regularly every week. He has also just taken part in the school show in the choir. Neither of these A would have been interested in before attending this group. He will now choose to listen to certain music in the car and he will attempt to sing himself to very familiar songs. This is all down to the hard work you all do in the Sound Connection group and how valuable these sessions are. The impact that Sound Connection and music has is phenomenal on children with additional needs, enabling them to access pleasure which everyone else can take for granted”“My child’s signing skills have progressed greatly and his range of vocal sounds has increased too”“My child is affectionate with a wider range of people now and will even seek out completely new people to interact with”“He is more animated, happy and motivated, socially more confident in different situations with people who are not family or close friends”“My child is now looking around at people, and taking notice of his surroundings which he didn’t do before. School have also mentioned that D is much more verbal and responsive within the classroom environment”“My child has always loved music, singing and dancing and the Sound Connection project has reached her on a new level I believe. It has enhanced her interest and enthusiasm and increased her confidence, which is wonderful, as music and dance make her so happy!
