Lullabies and Laughter is an in-home music visit program designed to help caregivers learn how to use music with their infants, ages 0-2, to promote their healthy development and bonding with each other.
This individualized in-home music visit session is for one or two caregivers and their infant to attend together. Our board-certified music therapist specializing in early intervention will meet each baby at which they are developmentally, regardless of developmental disabilities or complex medical backgrounds and develop an individual plan for their caregivers on how to incorporate music in their home that facilitates the baby's optimal growth.
Our music therapist will foster a safe and welcoming environment for caregivers to learn how to use music to bond with their babies and also work on babies' developmental goals at the same time. A visit will be 30-minute long and optimally engage babies in music-based activities and prevent them from being overstimulated or tired.
This program is ideal for (but not limited to): Babies with developmental delays Typically functioning babies Babies with complex medical backgrounds Moms who are experiencing post-partum depression Babies and their LGBTQIA+ families Babies who are raised by non-biological parents Babies and parents with medical conditions
The infant brain is with billions of neurons that will connect and form pathways during this formative time. We will design individualized music activities that promote building neural pathways in your baby’s brain. Research has demonstrated that: - Music listening activities can help babies to gain improved understanding of rhythm in speech and music. - Rhythm-based activities designed by music therapists can help younger children engage in movement activities to promote their motor skills development more efficiently and effectively.
Our visits will cultivate joy and bonding and help their developmental neural pathways form and grow by using music, movement, and, of course, some laughter!
