Music therapy process
After an intake and scheduling with our Admin team, Therapists will conduct a comprehensive assessment and develop a unique treatment plan based on where services will be most supportive. Therapists observe individual’s overall interactions within music engagement and can support their creative expression, positive attunement, social engagement, sense of self, motor and perceptual awareness within a sensory rich environment. Individuals will engage in active music making at their skill and interest level, which could include songwriting, song discussion, playing instruments, movement to music, recreating music or interacting within music in any other way!
