For children and adults with disabilities, music therapy sessions utilise music in a fun and interactive way to achieve an individuals non-musical goals. The sessions commonly support joint attention and social skills development, communication skills, fine and gross motor skills to improve mobility as well as fostering opportunities for choice and control, creativity and self-regulation to enhance everyday life.
Our music therapy sessions are person-centred meaning that they are specially designed to meet individual needs. A blend of known and improvisational (created in the moment) music is used and the musical interventions may include a mix of instrumental play, singing, music and movement, the use of interactive technology or songwriting.
Sessions range from 30 minutes to 1 hour in duration and caregivers are very welcome to observe the sessions or take part in the music making. The music therapy programs are always evaluated to ensure they are meeting an individual's established goals and progress updates are provided either through reports or recordings.
