Did You Know Kid's Creek Offers Music Therapy? 

Music Therapy is the use of music to achieve non-musical goals. Music therapists work toward similar goals to those of speech therapists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists, but using music as our medium! We help improve speech, cognition, attention, motor skills, and self-help and play skills.

Music is a powerful vehicle for development and rehabilitation because of it's nonverbal, creative, structural, and emotional qualities. Music is accessible and non-intimidating, which allows for quick progress to be attained - AND IT'S FUN! - which makes it motivating for children!
