Music therapy has proved vital for many SHALVA children, aiding rehabilitation and improving their physical and emotional well-being. Structured activities such as singing, listening, playing instruments and exercises in imagination facilitate the acquisition of communicative and movement skills. These tools strengthen the child's emotional development, coordination, social skills, and ability to learn.
For children with special needs, music therapy is an important therapeutic tool. It can advance a child who is not verbal by developing an alternative means of communication. Music allows them to express frustrations and feelings of distress, pangs of emotional development, which enable them to strengthen their self-image. The team of therapists work in small groups to ensure the success of the therapy.
Music therapy provides the children a channel of communication which goes beyond speech and reveals the concealed depths of the soul.
