Offered at UofL Pediatrics on the Kosair Charities campus, supportive family classes follow the same curriculum as our regular mixed-age classes, but their smaller class size and relaxed pacing make them ideal for children with special needs. These classes are ideal for children with health challenges and developmental disabilities, as well as their traditionally developing siblings and friends.
Supportive family classes offer support and information that will be specifically helpful to parents and caregivers of children with special needs. They're also a great support for siblings! As in all our classes, supportive family classes welcome children with a range of ages, temperaments, and ability levels.
Classes are taught by Stephanie Sullivan-Whitten
, a board-certified music therapist, who is also trained and registered as a Music Together®
teacher. Stephanie deeply understands the needs of non-traditionally-developing children, and she has a passion for using music to help all children discover their potential.
