Music therapy for special needs

Music therapist Alison Usher-Jones is opening a private practice in Westmount for children ages 2-18.

The focus is on using the non-verbal medium of music to help children develop greater self-expression, social engagement, relaxation, language development, and self-esteem.

The hour-long sessions address a wide range of issues including anxiety, ADHD, behavioural problems and overcoming difficult life challenges.

The practice is located at 34 Thornhill Ave, Suite B, Westmount.
