The Power of Musical Play
Musical Play Therapist, Julie Wylie, is well-known for her work using musical play to support early intervention for infants and young children with challenges to their development. Julie recognises that each child has an inherent musicality, regardless of disability and believes that music is a powerful non-verbal form of communication which helps children to feel included and safe.
