    This month we're joined by Cheryl Campbell, Music Therapist, for a fun online hangout! 

    Cheryl will provide a brief overview of music therapy (what it is, who is a music therapist), and how it works for babies, children, and parents.  During this interactive online hangout, we will discuss a variety of ways that parents can use music in their own homes to stimulate development.

    Grab a cup of tea or coffee, and log in to the video chat with other Parent's of Preemies in a casual atmosphere and learn all about Music Therapy! 

    More about Cheryl Campbell:
    Cheryl-Lee is an accredited music therapist (MTA) who lives and works in the GTA. She holds a Master of Music Therapy (MMT) from Wilfrid Laurier University.

    This course teaches kids how to prepare to look after themselves for a short period of time before and after school or if you need to run a quick errand. 

    This course is open to kids 9-13 years of age with the understanding that you as a parent know your child best.  Deciding when a child is mature enough to be at home alone is an important judgement call for parents and even after training it’s best to start with short periods of home alone time and slowly work up to longer periods once you and your child are both comfortable.
