Who can Sound Connection Benefit?Our sessions have been found to be particularly beneficial for children with the following challenges …AutismAccording to the National Autistic Society …“Autism is a lifelong, developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them”Autism is much more common than many people think. There are around 700,000 people on the autism spectrum in the UK – that's more than 1 in 1001. If you include their families, autism is a part of daily life for 2.8 million people.For more information regarding autism contact The National Autistic Society - www.autism.org.ukProfound and multiple learning disabilitiesA diagnosis of a profound and multiple learning disability (PMLD) is used when a child has more than one disability, with the most significant being a learning disability. Many children diagnosed with PMLD will also have a sensory or physical disability or complex health needs.Cerebral PalsyScope says “Cerebral palsy is a condition that affects muscle control and movement. It's usually caused by an injury to the brain before, during or after birth. Children with a diagnosis of cerebral palsy may have difficulties in controlling muscles and movements as they grow and develop”In the UK, cerebral palsy affects about one in every 400 children. Cerebral palsy can affect people from all social backgrounds and ethnic groups.For more information regarding cerebral palsy contact Scope - www.scope.org.uk.Chromosome disordersUnique, the Rare Chromosome Disorder support Group website says the following regarding chromosome disorders …Rare chromosome disorders include extra, missing or re-arranged chromosome material but do not include the more common chromosome conditions such as Down's Syndrome. Using the latest technology, it is now possible for smaller and more complex chromosome defects to be identified. The amount of chromosome material duplicated, missing or re-arranged can vary a great deal. This means that it may be difficult to identify two people who have exactly the same chromosome disorder. The clinical problems of those affected can also vary enormously even when the chromosome diagnoses are similar.Individually rare chromosome disorders are indeed very rare but collectively they are common. In fact at least one in every 200 babies is born with a rare chromosome disorder, many babies having symptoms from birth or early childhood.General information on chromosomes and rare chromosome disorders can be found on the Unique website - www.rarechromo.co.ukLearning disabilitiesAccording to Mencap a learning disability is “a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities – for example household tasks, socialising or managing money – which affects someone for their whole life”People with a learning disability tend to take longer to learn and may need support to develop new skills, understand complicated information and interact with other people. The level of support someone needs depends on the individual. For example, someone with a mild learning disability may only need support with things like getting a job. However, someone with a severe or profound learning disability may need full-time care and support with every aspect of their life – they may also have physical disabilities.People with certain specific conditions can have a learning disability too. For example, people with Down’s syndrome and some people with autism have a learning disability”For more information regarding learning disabilities contact Mencap - www.mencap.org.uk.Useful WebsitesThe following methodologies may provide an interesting perspective on interaction and development.www.jabadao.orgwww.intensiveinteraction.org
