Student background

Student Aaliyah
Age 6
Year 1
School Primary

It was discovered recently that Aaliyah has fantastic rhythm and loves to dance. As a result, she has been attending music therapy for the last six months.

Aaliyah has global developmental delay. We have been working out ways to help Aaliyah learn how to be with others in a classroom environment.

The skills we have been focusing on include waiting, taking turns, and recognising personal space. This has been further supported by the supplementary learning support (SLS) teacher, who works with Aaliyah three times a week for three quarters of an hour per session.
