Superheros for Kids

MTSTL is excited to be a first-time sponsor to St. Louis Arc's Superheroes for Kids annual event. The event honored Dr. John Mantovani for his leadership in the field of pediatric neurology and autism.

MTSTL launched their integrated music therapy program for Childgarden Early Childhood Center in 2017 and has implemented new programming for their ESDM model in 2019. Collaborating together, Childgarden and MTSTL have found ways to bring more board certified quality music therapy services to children who can benefit greatly from it while promoting an integrative classroom experience.
