ComMusicate ComMusicate offers a unique blend of music and speech-language therapy with the goal of developing early language and social communication skills. The 10-week program includes songs and activities chosen to meet the participants' speech, language and interaction goals. Is ComMusicate the right group for my child?
ComMusicate was developed for preschool children between the ages of 2.5 and 5 years of age
Level 1 is for children with few to no words and / or minimal interaction skills
Level 2 is for children who use single words or gestures and some two word combinations and who interact to make requests (at minimum).
A love of music and movement is a great place to start with this program.
