The new year always brings about new beginnings. Resolutions are made, changes promised, and predictions made. The feeling of a fresh start is exciting, and we're feeling that energy as well! Here are our predictions for what 2014 has in store for The George Center.
1. Our therapists will present at a conference
I won't say if this will be a regional, national, or even a music therapy conference, but I get the feeling this is the year we finally put it all together and present as a team at a conference. I'm hoping for national conference in the Fall.
2. We'll produce another video that racks up 10,000 views
So far, only our "Science Style" and "Somebody That I Used to Know" parodies have crossed that mark, but I'm thinking we'll get a third video into that range. Hopefully our video we're planning for social media advocacy month!
3. We'll welcome a new therapist to our team
The way things have been going, this is a pretty safe prediction! We're growing as fast as ever, in fact we just hired our former intern Jordan! But I think we may even need to bring on another member to our team before the year runs out.
4. Our Decatur clinic location will be BUMPING!
We've gotten a TON of interest in music therapy from Atlanta and Decatur families lately, so we finally made the leap and opened a satellite clinic in Decatur. Interest remains high, and I'm predicting this location will be rolling in just a few short months. It's great to be ITP!
5. Our new groups will be a smash hit in the Atlanta community
We're kicking off 2014 by starting up an intergenerational rock band with Arbor Terrace Assisted-Living, April will see the second performance of our Any Dream Will Do group, and we've got plans to perhaps start a summer marching band camp for students with special needs later in the year! I think these will be a BIG hit in the community.
