It has made me wonder about possibly getting him involved in music lessons. It has also peaked my curiosity about the benefits of music therapy. I’ve never known anyone who has tried music therapy, but if you are like me, and want to find out more about it, Support for Families will be offering a music therapy workshop for parents and professional.  Stop by on Friday, December 14 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at their 1663 Mission Street office in San Francisco, for a workshop entitled Music Therapy forChildren with Special Needs.  The presenter, Yuriko Urushibata, a board certified music therapist who has worked with children of various diagnoses, will explain the possible social, vocal, concentration , and physical coordiantion benefits of music therapy. She will also offer some helpful tips to use at home.

If you would like to attend this workshop, you can call Support for Families at 415-920-5040. To request childcare or interpretation services, you must register at least one week in advance.
