Sounds of Intent

Adam Ockelford

Sounds of Intent is the result of over two decades of research into the musical development of neurodiverse children and young people with learning difficulties conducted by Adam Ockelford. A musical development framework was put in place that covers a whole range of abilities, from profound and multiple learning difficulties to those with autism. The framework is freely available on all platforms to anyone who wishes to use it and the strategy includes sending out free Sounds of Intent resource packs to Children’s Centres in England, Music Hubs and Early Years Lead Officers in Local Authorities.
