This year’s focus is the utilization of music, play and art therapies in the treatment and education of those with developmental disabilities and on the autism spectrum. Register now and join us for a day of knowledge and engagement as we learn how to think outside the box with creative therapies!
Location is the Hilton in Long Island, NY *Complimentary Shuttle Service between the Farmingdale LIRR and the Hilton Long Island*
Through a series of interactive and informative presentations, given by leaders in the realm of creative therapies, participants will learn through experiential processes the potential advantages of incorporating these modalities into their sessions and daily practices; including, but not limited to, how these techniques can increase motivation, communication, social interaction and retention, as well as the importance of rapport-building. Special education providers, family members and the public alike can benefit from learning about these increasingly important and evidence-based artistic approaches.
