Music Therapy for Children with Disabilities

Can I just tell you how excited I am to be writing to you from Springfield for the first time in over a week? Really, really excited. As much as I love traveling, attending/presenting at conferences, and meeting new people, it feels good to be home. I can't wait to see all my kiddos today, and get back into the old routine.

But first, I wanted to share with you the information that I presented yesterday at the Illinois State Board of Education's nonpublic schools conference. It was great to be able to meet teachers and administrators from across the state and educate them about music therapy, and I can't wait to do it again next year! Below, you can download my handout and slides, both in PDF format.

It's funny to think that just a few days ago, I had a completely unfounded fear of public speaking. But I've quickly realized that if you're passionate about your topic, standing up in front of people and sharing information is easy and - I thought I would never say this - fun. I'm already looking for opportunities to present again in the near future!

Rachel,
You provided a GREAT session for our conference. Many participants commented on the great information you provided, as well as the enthusiasm you showed for this important service for students. I hope you will present again next year at our annual conference. All the best!
