Creating music is something that all children find stimulating and exciting. This new and updated edition of the well-established Making Music with the Young Child with Special Needs demonstrates how music can be used to encourage a child's development and provides practical help and guidance for parents and carers of all musical abilities, even beginners. The author also explains how musical activities can help to stimulate skills in other areas such as language and communication. The second part of the book details thirteen musical activities, with ideas for variations and further work. In this new edition of her well-established book, Elaine Streeter helps parents and carers to learn not only how they can add to a child's fun, but also how they can engage a child in interactive communication at a level the child can make sense of - one of the most rewarding things anyone can do.

I would recommend it to play group leaders, nursery staff, health and social workers - anyone who is concerned with the development of children in their care. -- British Journal of Learning Disabilities
What I particularly liked about this book was its gentle insistence that everyone (yes everyone!) can make and enjoy music. There are helpful tips on how to match activities to a child's abilities. All in all, this is a very useful and well-presented book. -- Share an Idea
A well written, beautifully illustrated and easy to follow book which re-emphasises that making music should be fun. -- Play Matters
If, like me, you find performing music a minefield of difficulty, take heart. Elaine Streeter, a renowned music therapist, has given us a guide on how to make music, in a quality way, with a child who has special needs. A very useful little book. -- Child Language Teaching and Therapy
