Using Art And Music To Teach Social Skills

Provided, Melodic Connections

  The social skills most of us take for granted, making eye contact, having a conversation, cooperating with others, can prove a challenge for children with special needs. For six weeks this summer, local service and arts organizations collaborated to create a unique program to help special needs kids build social skills. 

Joining us to discuss the program are Melodic Connections Founder and Executive Director Betsey Zenk Nuseibeh; Jamie Muenzer, Education director with Visionaries + Voices; and Ben Raanan, director of Education with Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati
