Interakt Music Movement and Cultural Learning Opportunities - Thursday
Last updated: 17/01/2022
"Holistic approach for meeting the needs of each individual to engage and achieve in a safe and supporting environment"
Music makes the world go round! In this session the group explores different cultural music and dance to experience and perform with one another. There are also opportunities for therapeutic approaches which are woven into the session for those with more complex needs.
The session splits into musical choices for singing, dancing, sensory and musical instruments.
The skills developed are in presentation, improvisation, memorising, sequencing, choreographing and performing, many of which are interchangeable with life skills.
Groups are made up of individuals with learning and physical disabilities, some with hearing and visual challenges, Interakt have the expertise to work with older people and those with mental health issues, but we also have volunteers and individuals from mainstream working with us as well.
Interakt also offers one to one support in sessions, travel training, out in the community, CV writing and job coaching.

- Other notes
For those transitioning from College to Adult Social Care contact WBC Adult Social Care and request a list from the transitioning team which will have details of Day Providers, their activities, sessions, days and times. Remember that your provision is your choice therefor make time to research and book a free taster session with those providers which you want to explore further. For those already in the Adult Social Care sector who require another service from a different provider to what they already have, contact Adult Social Care and ask to speak to your social worker or care manager with your query or request. The most important thing is for each individual to access a service that is of their own choice that each individual is informed of a variety of provisions in order to make an informed choice which works best for them.
