How can we help you?
All music therapy services begin with an assessment. Using a standardized procedure, a board-certified music therapist will assess whether music therapy services would be beneficial for the client. Should the initial assessment determine that music therapy would be helpful, the music therapist will coordinate with the caregivers and other professionals to determine goals and objectives.
During music therapy sessions, the client and therapist work together to master the identified goals and objectives through music. Goals may include muscle training, the development of communication and social skills, relaxation, IEP goals, and more through singing, playing, moving, composing, discussing, and listening to music.
Throughout each session, the therapist will gather and analyze data on the clients progress. Each client will periodically be evaluated to determine whether music therapy services are still appropriate. Essentially, if a client has reached all potential goals, or music therapy is no longer beneficial, services will be discontinued.
