Our board certified music therapists use research-based neurologic music therapy interventions to meet the academic, sensorimotor, emotional, social, communication and development needs of your loved one in your home or facility setting. Individual community-based sessions are ideal for individuals who could benefit from customized experiences that incorporate creative and new approaches to meeting their needs in a more natural environment. Our music therapists assess the needs of your loved one, work side by side with you to develop goals and select techniques to help them succeed. Our techniques are drawn from a foundation in Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT). NMT is based on a neuroscience model of music perception and production, and the influence of music on functional changes in nonmusical brain and behavior functions. Research supports connections between speech and singing, rhythm and motor behavior, memory for song and memory for academic material, and overall ability of preferred music to enhance mood, attention, and behavior to optimize the your loved one’s ability to learn and interact.
Examples of those could benefit from community based individual sessions include:
- An older adult with dementia who is bed-bound
- A teen with autism who lives in a group home
- A child with language delays receiving IEP based services in a school setting
