SLP-Facilitated Music Therapy
Westmount Music Therapy has teamed up with Tamara Paull owner of SpeakAble for an SLP-facilitated music therapy group.
The group will be run by Tamara Paull, SLP, and Alison Usher-Jones, MT. Together, they select a group of children that would be appropriate based on their skills, needs and ages. As the Music Therapist works her magic using instruments and song, the SLP helps facilitate the progress of each child’s skills in speech, language, oral motor or social skill development.
If your child has a speech and language evaluation report, you will be asked to send those for review by the SLP who will determine whether or not they are still valid. If the SLP recommends updated goals, or if your child does not have a speech and language report, your child must attend a mandatory free 15-minute speech and language screening. You will be provided with a brief progress note regarding your child’s speech and language goals after the completion of the group.
