Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals related to social and developmental milestones, using music-related activities to work on non-musical goals. This specialty therapy program is only completed by a credentialed professional who is certified in an approved therapy program for children.
What happens during Music Therapy?
Music therapy appointments can be scheduled one on one with a certified therapist and a child or in a group setting depending on the child's preferences and temperament. Every therapy experience is tailored to the child's needs. Some activities we do during Music Therapy are...
- Singing to improve speech production (articulation, fluency, volume)
- Instrument playing to improve social skills (joint attention, turn taking)
- Movement to music to improve gross motor coordination
- Musical games to improve language and cognitive processing
- Songwriting to improve executive functions and self-expression
