What are the goals of SPEC?
There are two main goals of SPEC:
(1) encourage child development through fun, multi-sensory and stimulating musical play
(2) provide opportunities for children and their carer/s to have fun together! Young children learn best through interaction with their carers.
Since music is both inherently fun and developmentally stimulating, it’s an excellent and enjoyable means of supporting & encouraging your child’s development. SPEC aims to encourage: speech/language, cognition (e.g. concepts & counting), fine and gross motor skills, sharing, turn-taking, confidence, sensory integration, self-expression, self-regulation and musical development.
Who runs SPEC?
SPEC is facilitated by a registered music therapist who is trained to use music to promote, attain and maintain health and well-being. She plays live music and is responsive to your child’s needs, communications and initiations. This means that SPEC is much more than just entertainment or a music class; it is individualized interaction designed around your child’s needs to best support their growth and development.
