Supportive family classes have a smaller class size and more relaxed pacing than our mixed-age classes, making them ideal for children with special needs. Parents and caregivers get extra support and information to help them in caring for a child with special needs.
These classes are also a space where typically developing siblings and friends can also happily play together with their special needs siblings and friends. As in all our classes, supportive family classes welcome children with a range of ages, temperaments, and ability levels.
Offered at UofL Pediatrics on the Kosair Charities campus, these classes are ideal for children with health challenges and developmental disabilities, as well as their traditionally developing siblings and friends.
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.
- Classes offered Tuesday afternoons at 4:30 pm at UofL Pediatrics - Kosair Charities.
- Summer classes start June 25, for a 4- or 6-week session. Each class is 45 minutes.
- Enrollment for this class is limited to 4-8 enrolled children. This class is targeted toward children ages 0-5. If you have an older child, please contact us to discuss whether the class might be a good fit.

Please note: Although this class is designed around the needs of children with special needs, we welcome children with special needs in all of our classes. Music Together classes are an excellent learning environment for children with all levels of ability!
