Just as the friends in the Land of Make-believe sang a welcome to their guests, a “ComeAllYa” is a welcoming invitation—“Come all of you and join in the fun.” This session is open to young children with and without disabilities and their caregivers as well as anyone who works with this population. We will sing and play together with the children in joyful participatory, creative music-making. After the musical play, the children will have an opportunity for a snack and a craft with undergraduate students from the Fred Rogers Scholars Program while we debrief the session and talk about strategies for including children of all abilities in our Neighborhoods through in music and play.
