Music Therapy

Our music therapist works as a member of our interdisciplinary team to help support and address development of physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs of individuals. The music therapist assesses the strengths and needs of students and utilizes music to address nonmusical goals. Through musical involvement in the therapeutic context, students’ abilities are strengthened and transferred to other areas of their lives.

Many types of therapeutically-directed music experiences prescribed by a credentialed music therapist can help individuals with visual impairments develop body image, spatial awareness, orientation, mobility and environmental exploration skills. Music interventions can also help with overall physical rehabilitation, facilitating movement, self-awareness, social interaction, self-expression, auditory discrimination, sensory stimulation, relaxation and positive coping skills.
