Children's health resources

The following resources and app provide useful advice and information signposting to the relevant local services:

Online Music Therapy

In Online Music Therapy, Music Therapists interact with the children or young people through a video conferencing app. We use an app called Zoom because it is easy to set up, works well for music and video and is much safer to use - for more information please download our Online Music Therapy guide.

At Little Havens, we want to offer support through our Music Therapist to as many families, including our J's families, as possible during this time.  Therefore, we are offering group sessions, using our familiar ‘Sensory Story’ structure, as well as play-n-sing-along and relaxation sessions. Please download the timetable of sessions below for more information on each type of session and complete the form further on this page to let us know what sessions you would like to take part in.
