We offer flexible service options because we understand your schedule is complex and your needs are unique.
These are typically 50-minute-long music therapy sessions held in our studio at least once per week. After an initial assessment, measurable goals and objectives catered to the specific strengths and challenges of your loved one will be created. Data and progress notes are taken after each session. The goals and objectives are typically updated and reviewed every twelve weeks.
We strive to complement other therapies and programs in which your family member participates. Communication with the allied health professionals on your family member’s team is an invaluable part of our process.
These 45-minute groups are held every other week in our studio and are a great compliment to weekly individual sessions. These groups provide your family member with the opportunity to engage with other clients in a safe and structured space.
Many of the songs and activities in these groups are introduced in individual sessions so that your loved one is confident and excited about his or her role within the larger group setting.
FAMILY CENTERED IN-HOME SESSIONS
These sessions are typically a minimum of two hours within your home. By working with your loved one in a familiar setting, we address some of the challenges in his or her routine such as taking a bath, getting dressed, brushing teeth or eating a meal. This package includes a follow-up mp3 and video created to address a specific challenge.
This song and video work best when learned by the entire family and will include the steps involved and language around a particular challenge in order to provide incentive and structure to help your loved one master this challenge.
ADAPTED MUSIC LESSONS
Many of our clients show a special interest in a particular instrument. If that instrument is piano or voice, we provide individual lessons adapted to accommodate challenges and enhance strengths.
Our students are included in our bi-annual recitals and other musical events. We have seen many of our clients flourish within this structure and are happy to assess whether or not your loved one is ready for this approach.
Families usually benefit the most from individual music therapy complimented by bi-monthly group sessions. However, if you are seeking support in accomplishing day-to-day goals with your family member at home, a family centered in-home music therapy package may be the best way to introduce music therapy into your loved one’s routine.
If you are unable to schedule individual or family centered in-home music therapy sessions, a great first step is participating in one of our bi-monthly music therapy group sessions.
