Music Therapy Services
Assessments are essential in developing appropriate therapeutic interventions for all evidence-based medicine. Assessments are provided at the first contact with a client and function as the framework for goals and objectives targeted in therapeutic sessions.
Individual treatment sessions are provided to both private clients and those clients associated with other facilities. Individual treatment plans are based on a client’s specific needs and goals. Such needs and goals can be determined through an integrative treatment team as in a school setting with the IEP or health care center with other therapy professionals including teachers, physicians, physical therapists, speech therapists, and occupational therapists or on an individual consultative basis. Individual sessions focus on functional goals and objectives for the client’s everyday living and development. The therapist will consult to the Transformational Design Model (TDM) of designing appropriate and research-based musical experiences to directly target adaptive goals.
Group treatment sessions are provided mainly to facilities that request music therapy treatment interventions to a group of persons with similar functioning, however, not limited to such a group dynamic. Goals and objects are designed with the group in mind, however, do target individual goals within the group setting. The therapist will consult to the Transformational Design Model (TDM) of designing appropriate and research-based musical experiences to directly target adaptive goals. The size of music therapy groups differ and depend mainly on the functionality of the group and the individuals included in it.
