About the Therapy

Serving: ALL AGES

Research and evidence based practice that uses music to work on individualized social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and communication goals. Our Board-Certified Music Therapists work with Villagers through singing, moving to music, playing instruments, listening, and other proven techniques.

Villagers work toward measurable and data-based goals and objectives. Goals may be parallel with Reach High, Dream Big, IEP goals, or other therapies. According to the therapists recommendations, individual sessions are in 30, 45, and 60 minute weekly or bi-weekly time slots. Group sessions are offered in 60 minute weekly time slots with varying goals addressed.

Hours: Monday-Thursday, 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM

Music Therapy Process

The Therapy Services Director will conduct a consultation with the primary caregiver in order to get to know the Villager better and identify their strengths and needs. The Director will then recommend a therapy service, therapist, and guide the family through intake policies.

During the first sessions, the therapist will conduct an assessment with the client to identify specific goals and objectives. 

Information from the consultation and the assessment will be used to identify goals and objectives for each client. Progress can be seen through measurable and specific objectives, created by the music therapist. The ultimate goal is for the skills to be generalized outside of therapy into every day life.

Therapy includes interventions that address the identified goals and objectives. Some interventions may include: playing instrument, lyric analysis, song writing, singing, moving to music, improvisation, task analysis, and adaptive music lessons. The ultimate goal is for generalization of skills outside of therapy.

Ongoing evaluation will be documented through weekly data collection and discussion with parents. Reassessment will also be conducted when appropriate.
