Kiddleydivey has been working with children, older adults, those in care and vulnerable members of society with dementia and other memory function loss conditions since 1996. The company was founded by Sally, its Executive Director, and has built a fantastic reputation as a quality service provider in these important areas.
The use of music as a therapeutic and educational tool is well documented. When music and songs, specially chosen or composed for their inherent therapeutic qualities, are combined with props to facilitate and encourage child development, speech, coordination and movement, social interaction and memory function, the results are frequently, incredible!
Older people who don’t usually communicate can suddenly start to sing and interact with others. People who are usually withdrawn and quiet, start to become animated, and others, who are not normally very mobile, often decide to dance!
Very young children soon learn to accommodate others in the same group, speech and language are greatly enhanced whilst singing and rhythmical music helps to develop coordination, speech and language and motor control.
