We are delighted and flattered to have had our Interactive Music-Making course nominated for an Oxleas Recognition Award by Lisa Thomspon, Head of Therapy and Integration - Children & Young People's Services - Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust. Lisa has also supported our submission for an HSJ Award. This is a national award which celebrates health service innovation. Lisa wrote:
"It is a great coup to have this University accredited course sitting within the portfolio of activities offered by the Children and Young People’s Therapy Services. We know that targeting the Under 5s and engaging with their care providers, is at the root of meeting children’s social, emotional and developmental needs. Simple as it sounds, a good start really can make a significant difference. And for those children for whom enhanced services in their nurseries are not sufficient, the Interactive Music-Making course enables quick and informed onward referrals.
I really do see this model as best practice for early intervention."
