These skills are particularly challenging for children with disabilities whose social development may be delayed. Therefore, the presenter highlighted ways to approach making music with young children in the inclusion classroom to support development of social skills not only in children with disabilities, but in any child who is delayed in social skill development. Attendees were also introduced to relevant social development theories as they apply to children.
