Additional needs

Most importantly – everyone can participate in music even if they experience difficulties in other areas. Kiddleydivey Music Leaders are trained to help accomplish the goal of successful participation, leading to increased confidence and motivation.

Kiddleydivey provide stimulating and energising music programmes for children and adults with special or additional needs.

Adults and children with additional needs often seek identity and validation. We have found that one of the best ways to gain these is through music. Kiddleydivey sessions for children and adults provide opportunities for socialisation, interaction, and the use of music for self-expression. Through the use of singing, playing instruments, movement to music, and dancing, individuals gain confidence, improve self-esteem, and best of all, have fun!

What does a Kiddleydivey music session look like?

Well, the first thing you will notice watching Kiddleydivey, is that everyone is having loads of fun!   What better way is there to get everyone involved and participating, relaxed and feeling safe, than by involving humour and laughter!

Kiddleydivey Music Leaders are very experienced in all types of additional needs, so are not fazed by different types of behaviour.  This allows them to involve everyone in their sessions as much as is possible while also understanding their limitations.

The structure of the sessions increases brain activity and incorporates brain exercises that may help to stimulate communication, speech and language and keep the mind working better for longer.

Every song and activity has been researched and trialed over long periods of time with many different groups to improve results and enjoyment.
