Working together
to create pathways to progress.

The rhythm helped me with my movements and the beat of the music allowed me to walk with less problems.

The rhythm and the choice of music gave me the motivation to push myself further. It felt like I could achieve something again.

E

The music was so uplifting, and my mood has significantly improved.

Movement

Sensorimotor techniques support movement goals related to coordination, range-of-motion, balance, strength, endurance, and activities of daily living.

Communication

The speech and language techniques can be used to support a range of speech and language goals including breath support, speech development, word retrieval, word fluency, articulation, voicing volume, voice inflection, and non-verbal expressive communication.

Cognition

Specific techniques are used to address several cognition goals in the areas of attention, executive function, memory, psychosocial, and sensory integration.
