MissionBHMA uses a comprehensive curriculum with music at its core to help individuals with intellectual and development disabilities advance their skills for communication, independence, and employment.
We do this by:
* Integrating musical programming through a comprehensive curriculum that engages the entire brain.
* Empowering students to advocate for themselves effectively through productive communication and interaction with peers.
* Teaching pre-vocational and vocational skills within a community setting, with job-related support for successful employment.
* Encouraging students to achieve increasing levels of independence through involvement in the local community.
