This engaging sensory program brings children who have developmental delay or disability together with their families to interact through music.

Accessible music experiences are carefully planned to promote developmental skills and the joy of self-expression. Held over six sessions in small groups, the program is run by Registered Music Therapists and is tailored to suit individual needs.

FAQs

This program is for children who are aged 3-5 years (pre-school age) who have delayed development, or a diagnosed disability. At least one parent or caregiver is required to stay for the duration of the session. Occasionally it is appropriate for children who are younger than 3 attend; please get in touch if you would like to discuss the program further.

This program runs in small groups, with a maximum of 5 families in each session.

No – unfortunately we cannot take bookings for less than 6 sessions. This program is especially designed as a therapeutic ‘block’ where children are supported to become familiar with the program, others in the group and to develop skills over time.

It is fine to bring your child’s sibling, however we recommend bringing an additional adult to help where possible. Please inform staff if you would like to bring a sibling.

Many families who attend Sound Beginnings do not have access to funding options, which is why we have kept costs as low as possible ($180 for a block of 6 sessions). Please note that our costs are low due to generous support of donors.

Please take note if the following funding options apply to your child:

  • HCWA funding: Can be used, however please be aware this does incur additional administration fees.
  • NDIS : Can only be used by families who have a self-managed plan.
  • Baptcare Flexible Support Package: Consult your early intervention provider for more information & eligibility; this can be used with our program.
