OUCH Music Therapy for Special Needs

OUCH Music Therapy for Special Needs (OMT) uses music to address human needs within communicative, cognitive, emotional, physical and social domains. The program helps children that are in the spectrum to positively cope, manage and improve these essential skills. OMT sessions are designed to suit students' unique needs. This includes active and receptive (musical) interventions.
