‘’His, little, voice…"

Communication booster – introductory offer

Helping clients with ASD with communication using

Neurologic Music Therapy (online)

There are so many different facets of the Autistic Spectrum, but families of the clients I work with have identified some key areas where support is often needed. One of these is speech –  clients may have the ability to speak, but lack awareness when it comes to speech tone, social cues and turn-taking. Others may have echolalia, word-looping, very little or sometimes no speech at all.  Typically, clients who have difficulty expressing themselves through words can experience a huge amount of anxiety, frustration and upset as a result of their difficulties which can be just as hard on their loved ones and caregivers.

A powerful, science-backed and yet gentle, creative intervention

Our area of expertise is delivering potent, evidence-based Music Therapy that has a powerful impact on the client’s ability to communicate with others. This is done first and foremost by creating a comfortable, relaxed, no-pressure environment using music. There are a number of specific techniques we use to promote interaction and develop speech This Inner Voice, but as music is such a gentle and flexible modality, the client doesn’t feel as though they are doing anything other than having a lovely time. In a relaxed, non-judgmental environment, words or the beginnings of them, often start to emerge, especially when singing. 

Similarly, therapeutic vocal work is a proven method of making a client’s speech much easier to understand and help with modulating the voice more easily. We can tailor specific interventions to match the client’s needs exactly.

Professional vocal + Music Therapy training = amazing results!

Neurologic Music Therapist Serenna was delighted to discover that when she first worked with this client group, that her impact was greatly intensified by 20+ years of working as a professional singer and voice coach. Her understanding of the mechanics of the voice and development of effective ways to help clients to actually produce words has set her apart in this field.

A willingness to join in and sing a little bit is all that is necessary. In my experience, carefully devised singing work has been a huge key to helping clients with ASD.
