We Rock for Autism is currently in the process of implementing some new Music Therapy Programs. More details will be release this Summer
We Rock for Autism provides a variety services in support of improving the lives and communication skills of children with autism and their families.
Music Therapy Programs
Direct Service Provider of Music Therapy
With a Board Certified Music Therapist on our board, we are able to provide music therapy sessions directly to a limited number of children each year. These sessions can be provided at the families home or at a designated location. The therapy implemented for each child is customized by Allison Lockhart, MT-BC and designed to guide each child toward their goals.
Autism Friendly Family Events
We Rock for Autism has implemented an Autism Friendly Family Events Program to provide families the opportunity to enjoy various events with each other. All families are welcome to these events, as they are to encourage acceptance and inclusion. We have hosted sensory friendly movie screenings, where the lights remain on and the volume is turned down. The kids are free to move about the theater and talk. This gives families the ability to see a movie in a theater without worrying about bothering or apologizing to other movie goers.
We have also hosted a Painting Event at Color Me Mine in Davie, Florida. This event allowed families to enjoy a few hours of painting ceramics and having fun in a staffed and safe environment. Working with the businesses within the community allow us to arrange these Autism Friendly Events and we are looking forward to partnering with more companies in the near future.
Autism Awareness and Acceptance
Autism Awareness and Acceptance is always at the forefront of our goals. We Rock for Autism attends and hosts various events throughout the year and always has plenty of autism awareness merchandise to hand out. You will see us handing out literature or giving away stickers, autism awareness stuffed animals, shoelaces, guitar picks and more. If you see us at an event, stop by and see what we have!
