WHAT DOES MUSIC THERAPY INVOLVE?
1. Initial assessment: we discuss with the parents and assess the child within a music therapy setting to determine the child’s current abilities and needs
2. Goal-setting: an individualised program is developed with goals based on the child’s needs.
3. Music therapy sessions: sessions consist of interactive interventions designed to address the music therapy goals. These could include singing, moving to music, playing instruments, improvising through music and song-writing.
4. Evaluation: the program is regularly evaluated to ensure it is meeting the identified goals.
Sessions are 30 minutes duration and are conducted on a weekly basis.
