Granting Music Therapy to Students with Special Needs
Kate’s Voice is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization that provides music therapy services to students with special needs. Through interactive sessions, music therapy offers students with special needs opportunities to develop a wide range of skills in the social, self-expression, communication, and gross/fine motor areas. And it’s just a plain old fun environment for students to learn and enjoy themselves through the powerful medium of music.
