Rehabilitation for The Disabled

Music therapy is part of ELEPAP’s holistic approach to intervention in order to make the most of infant’s full potential. Music therapy helps children to express their emotions and provides them with opportunities for relaxation and stress relief. It promotes an infant’s mental balance and ensures the development of imaginary thinking and the growth of communication skills.

* Individual sessions of music listening, improvisation and musical play, where children assume the double role of listener and creative artist

* Intervention at the level of direct interpersonal communication. According to the theory of intersubjectivity (Trevarthen, 1982), early interpersonal communication is organized according to the principles of music. In this sense, music becomes a mediator of early socio-emotional and cognitive development. The use of music plays a crucial role in the acquisition of language (communication sequences between mother and infant, baby songs for emotional support).

* Music therapy promotes infants’ attention span  and  strengthens their ability to discriminate between  sounds. Furthermore, music can also facilitate mothers’ relationship to their new-born children (acceptance, bonding).
