The Fairbank Community Center is offering a month-long music course for non-verbal children and their parents that will help develop communication skills.
According to the Town of Sudbury website, the course will be led by Sarah Tree, MT-BC. It will take place on Thursday from 5:15-6 p.m. from April 3 to May 15.
"Music making and instrument play is a fun and natural way to communicate," the description of the course said. "Using instruments, our bodies and our voices, we will create music as a group to support the development of verbal and non-verbal communication skills."
The goals for the group are to increase communication skills, imitating sounds, choice making, and participation in a group activity.
Parents will not simply drop off their children each week. Instead, they are required to stay and participate in the sessions.
The cost of the group is $254 per child, and $191 for a second child from the same family.
