Update

As part of our organisational response to the COVID-19 virus, Children in Scotland has adapted our training and events programme to a digital webinar format for the foreseeable future.

Our webinar programme can be found here and will be updated regularly.

We may be running some of our scheduled events as abbreviated webinar versions, while others have to be cancelled or postponed until face-to-face training is possible again. Please keep an eye on our website, social media channels and Eventbrite page for updates.

If you've already booked onto any face-to-face training between now and later this year, please note that our Learning and Events team will be in touch with you should the arrangements change.

Our office is currently closed and staff will be working from home – you can contact the team using this email: events@childreninscotland.org.uk.

About this event

Research shows that children with autism respond positively to music. When Nordoff and Robbins founded their music therapy approach in the 1960s, they found that music helped children with autism to develop concentration, self-control and increased social and self-awareness. Although music therapy has significantly extended and developed, this client group remains one of the largest accessing music therapy today.Research shows that children with autism respond positively to music.

This workshop will include an introduction to music therapy and will offer you practical skills for using music with children who have autism and related conditions.

Key learning:

  • A theoretical understanding of music therapy, including video examples
  • Why music? The significance and impact of music for children with autism and related conditions
  • Practical skills and confidence to use music as a medium to encourage self-expression and increased participation.
