Music Therapy

Music therapy is an integral part of programming for every child at Children's Care Hospital & School. Each child generally receives music therapy twice a week from a board-certified music therapist (MT-BC). Music therapy activities are designed in group and individual settings to address each child's communication, behavioral, cognitive, physical, social, and self expressive goals.   

What is Music Therapy?
Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. (American Music Therapy Association definition, 2005)

Who can benefit from music therapy?
Children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly with mental health needs, developmental and learning disabilities, Alzheimer's disease and other aging related conditions, substance abuse problems, brain injuries, physical disabilities, and acute and chronic pain.
 

"I like to volunteer at Children's Care because even though I don't work directly with the students, there are still many jobs I am able to do that help them behind the scenes. This year I celebrated my 2-year anniversary volunteering here at Children's Care!"
